Events are being held in Kilkenny this coming week for An Taisce’s National Spring Clean.

Kilkenny County Council is organising a cleanup on this Friday (for more information, contact Marian on 056 7794398).

All volunteers registering for the National Spring Clean campaign are issued with a free clean-up kit containing information, posters and colour-coded refuse sacks for segregation of waste materials, protective gloves and tabards to keep participants clean. An Taisce will also liaise with local authorities to ensure that all materials collected will be picked up without charge. Those who wish to take part can go to the National Spring Clean website at www.nationalspringclean.org.

An Taisce is also giving Spring Cleaners the opportunity to win a weekend in Kilkenny’s Ormonde Hotel. Entries can be made at www.facebook.com/nationalspringclean.
