To raise awareness of the blight of roadside litter, Tipperary County Council is running a Tipp Litter Pick Week from the 21st to the 27th August. Get together as a group, rally your neighbours, friends, local community groups, local sports clubs and Tidy Towns and let’s all work together to help keep Tipp Litter Free in ’23.
Solving the county’s litter problem is not easy. The campaign is urging everyone to take personal responsibility for disposing of their litter correctly to “Keep Tipp Litter Free” and to protect our environment for now and for future generations.
Speaking at the launch of the Tipp Litter Pick 2023, Cathaoirleach of Tipperary County Council, Councillor Ger Darcy said, “I am delighted to be supporting the 2023 Tipperary litter pick. We are seeing more and more indiscriminate dumping of litter on the approach roads to our towns and villages. This is not what we want visitors to be greeted with when they visit to our beautiful County. Not alone is this creating a poor impression, but litter has a detrimental effect on our environment and public health. Those responsible for roadside littering are undermining the fantastic work carried out by committed volunteers and Tidy Town groups, who work alongside Tipperary County Council to keep the County clean. We all have a part to play in keeping Tipp Tidy.”
Getting involved is simple, interested groups should register here to receive a free litter pick pack. Litter collected in the specially branded bags will be accepted free of charge at any of Tipperary County Council’s Recycling Centres/Civic Amenity Sites from 21st August to 2nd September. All groups registered who post a photograph of their clean-up will be in with a chance to win a spot prize. Photo’s should be emailed to [email protected]
For further information call the Environment & Climate Action Section on 0818 06 5000 or email [email protected]
Let’s all work together to give our countryside a helping hand and keep Tipp Litter Free in ’23.
