Registration is now open for the 8th edition of the largest one-day clean-up in Ireland, Team Limerick Clean-Up (TLC8). It is set to take place on Good Friday, 7th April 2023 across Limerick city and county.
This year, participants in TLC8 are encouraged to bring a friend and involve any new neighbours in the community to come along and join in, in making Limerick a cleaner and more environmentally friendly county. The popular tea & coffee gatherings after the clean-up will also be held at locations throughout the city and county.
Last year, TLC7 marked the largest participation numbers so far, with over 21,000 volunteers taking part and collecting 68 tonnes of litter. The volunteers were from all walks of life ranging from schools, colleges, GAA clubs and Munster Rugby to businesses, charities, nursing homes and well-known faces locally.
Team Limerick Clean-Up is an initiative sponsored by the JP McManus Benevolent Fund and has seen over 400 tonnes of litter gathered from the streets by volunteers and event partner Mr. Binman since inception in 2015 – equating to over 14,500 household wheelie bins.
TLC is supported by Limerick City and County Council. Endorsed by Paul O’Connell, the official partners include Mr Binman, The Limerick Leader, The Limerick Post, I Love Limerick and Limerick Live 95FM.
