The Dublin West Green Party held our 3rd annual Royal Canal Clean-Up on Saturday. 25 volunteers helped us to picked up cans, bottles, paper and general rubbish from in and around the canal bank, covering the stretch between the 12th Lock pub and Coolmine train station.
By the end of the afternoon, we had about 20 bags of rubbish collected and divided between recyclables and non-recyclables. We also ended up with three bicycle wheels.
The Royal Canal is a huge resource for Dublin 15 in terms of boating, fishing, walking and cycling. It’s something we need to protect, which is why the Dublin West Greens organise a clean up each year. I want to thank all the volunteers who joined us and Fingal County Council who picked up the rubbish from us when we were finished.
