Littleton Youth Project junior boys and girls as well as the 4 Estates Youth Project 5th and 6th class groups recently took part in An Taisce National Spring Clean in their area.

This anti litter campaign afforded the young people the opportunity to get involved in their own communities and helped to create an awareness of the importance of recycling and the damage litter can cause to the environment.

Prior to the clean up the groups took part in anti litter workshops which outlined the need for protective clothing, how to segregate the waste materials into the colour coded refuse sacks as well as any Health & Safety issues.

All the young people enjoyed refreshments after their hard work and agreed it was a fun and positive experience.
