Residents across Wexford are being called upon to help clean up their coast as part of Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week 2016.
From May 6 to 15, volunteers across the country will get involved in numerous events and coastal clean-ups, including seven in Wexford. Through these clean-ups, organisers hope to remove a total of 11 tonnes of waste from beaches nationwide.
The local clean-ups will take place on May 13 at 3 p.m. at Duncannon Beach and May 15 at 11.15 a.m. in Rosslare. Times and dates for clean-ups in Rosslare Strand and Curracloe have yet to be confirmed. On May 15, a beach clean and seal release will run in partnership with Seal Rescue Ireland at Morriscastle Strand. Times for a similar event at Curracloe Beach have yet to be confirmed.
On May 13, the Wexford Kite-Surfing club will run workshops in Wexford. Other events include National #2MinuteBeachClean Day, the launch of Love Your Coast photography competition and Beat the Microbead Day.
