Crumlin Community Clean Up is a volunteer-run group based in Crumlin, Dublin, Ireland. The group activities is aimed at improving and sustaining the environment of the local area. Our mission is to enable every resident in the greater Crumlin area to take ownership of the shared community environment and work towards its constant improvement in line with values of sustainability, democracy and inclusiveness.
Crumlin Community Clean Up was set up in November 2018 by a local residents disgruntled by the amount of vandalism, litter and illegal dumping in the Crumlin area. Crumlin, like so many neighborhoods around Dublin had long lost it’s sense of community. Residents kept to themselves, concerned only with their property and anything directly affecting them. Local residents started seeing volunteers cleaning and wondered who these people were. Slowly the sense of community spirit that lay dormant for many years started to return. People started to offer help, the small team grew larger and one year on there is a group of 130 volunteers who each Saturday spend an hour(and often more) cleaning different areas of Crumlin, Kimmage and Walkinstown.
