Street Cleaning

Since Dublin City Council withdrew from the collection of domestic waste and the provision of a bin waiver in the city they also abandoned the policy of sweeping streets after bin collections.

I have raised this issue with the City Council because it is having a negative impact on the city's image.  It is really important that residential streets in our city are properly cleaned. All property owners are responsbile for the cleaning of paths in front of their own property.  I encourage residents to take pride in their area, to clean their paths and to monitor cleaning of their roads by Dublin City Council.  You can check Dublin City Councils schedule for cleaning your street by clicking here.  You can report areas in need of attention from Dublin City Council by calling the Litter Hotline 1800 248 348.  Mary
