Schools and community development organisations from all over county Roscommon are getting into ‘Spring Clean’ mode this week in preparation for the anti-litter initiative which runs throughout April and May. Every group which registers for National Spring Clean 2006 is issued with a free clean-up kit, which contains information, posters, colour coded refuse sacks, protective gloves and tabards to keep participants clean. The campaign, which aims to make Ireland a cleaner place to live, is organised by An Taisce, funded by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government and is sponsored by Coca-Cola Bottlers Ireland and the Wrigley Company.
