Down Your Street

Community Clean-up Fund

‘Down your street’ is a project that will enable constituted community groups to apply for “clean up” kits to enable them to take ownership of their streets and keep them clean. Any constituted community group big or small in Down District can apply.

Application Form

Groups can complete an application form which will detail the area they will clean, and approximately how often. Applicants will be given a clean-up kit. Kits will be given out on a first come first served basis.

The group will be offered the waste removal service and will receive continued support as the fund will have provision for supplying groups with extra clear bags for rubbish. Groups will be advised to contact Environmental Services to obtain a date and location of waste to be removed.
