May 2014 Cleanups

There was some great work done during May by Wexford Tidy Towns. Our first Saturday cleanup was held at Kaat Strand on 10th May where we had a great cleanup and cleared lots of rubbish from the area and grass. Well done all who did an amazing job, see some more photos of the cleanup here.









Our next Saturday cleanup met early at 8am on May 24th, outside Aspels Pub on the Quay. We wanted to get an early start as we were focusing on the main area of the town streets and laneways and it was easier to clean, to sweep and litter pick in the early morning before the shops opened. We had a very good turnout even with the early start and covered a lot of ground that day. We found some not so nice surprises though during our cleanup including a double sized chest freezer filled with dirty nappies and other rubbish, a microwave and a door dumped at 3 locations on the streets of Wexford town! It’s incredible what people think they can just dump wherever they want! Everyone did a great job on the day, well done and special thanks to Michael Hayes for the fantastic hospitality he showed us all, in O Briens on the main street after the cleanup it was much appreciated.

We have continued with our regular Wednesday evening cleanups, anyone is welcome to join us we meet every Wednesday at 6pm in the Bullring, litter pickers, gloves, bags etc. are provided. We are still looking for more people to do an hour once a week to cover the main street, laneways and quay, on different days of the week, would be great to get some other evenings covered if you are available and interested get in touch.

As the Tidy Towns competition is getting near and judging for the competition is taking place very soon we would really appreciate it if you would all help us by keeping outside your home or business clean and clear of rubbish.
