April is Spring Clean Month so if you and your community want to get together and clean your own area please get in contact with Wexford Tidy Towns and we will organise the gloves, bags and collection of rubbish. Wexford Tidy Towns recently had one of their regular cleanup on 21st March. Thank the 15 volunteers who came out and gathered 17 bags of rubbish from the rocks on the Quay and 1 mattress! Please recycle and dispose of your rubbish responsibly, everyone has a role to play in keeping our Town clean and beautiful.
So for Spring Clean Month if your own residents association, sports or community group or a group of family and friends know of a local area that could benefit from your help, please organise a cleanup and we will organise all the equipment you need and collection of rubbish. See what impact you can make on your own neighbourhood or community area by cleaning it up and getting involved in Spring Clean Month 2015.
Support your Local Tidy Towns Group in a different way. On Saturday March 28th we will be having a fun music quiz in Fusion cafe at 7.30pm. There will be tables of 4 for just €10 with bottle of wine for the winners. All proceeds will be going towards buying plants and paint for Wexford Tidy Towns. If you don’t have four just turn up on the night and we will sort you out. So come along and have some fun on the night, help out Wexford Tidy Towns by taking part and raising some much need funds to help with our efforts to keep Wexford clean and beautiful for everyone.
The Clean Coasts Roadshow will be visiting Wexford on Saturday 21st March at the Presentation Center Enniscorthy at 1.30pm. It aims to bring together all those with an interest in protecting their local beaches, seas and marine life.

There is a cleanup taking place on Saturday March 21st. We will be meeting at 10am meeting by the Tourist office on the Quay. We would love to see our regular volunteers and some new faces, everyone is welcome. We will be litterpicking, planting, recycling, and signing up people for the Green Dog Walkers Project.
The Green Dog Walkers Campaign is a positive and pro-active way to encourage and support responsible dog ownership in Wexford. It aims to increase awareness of the problem of dog fouling which is among the most common forms of littering. When you sign up to the scheme you will get a complimentary Green Dog Walkers high-vis vest, Green Dog-Walkers armband indicating that you are a responsible dog–owner participating in and supporting the scheme and a ‘doggie bone’ poop-bag dispenser with a roll of bags.
This is a campaign promoted and funded by the Environment Department of Wexford County Council, and supported by Borough District of Wexford, Wexford Tidy Towns, WSPCA, Visit Wexford.ie to combat the dog fouling in Wexford Town. Join our Green Dog Walkers campaign, by signing the pledge and together we can reduce dog-fouling in our community.
