On Saturday, September 28, a clean up will occur along the Grand Canal area from Wilton Terrace to Charlemont Mall between 10am and 1pm.

In exchange for help, reps will give volunteers a €20 credit voucher to use on the Deliveroo app. Volunteers will be given buckets and litter pickers to help clean the area.

John Tuohy, from Dublin City Council Waste Management Department, said: “We are always glad to see and encourage community initiatives that help keep Dublin city and all its wonderful resources litter free and ready for people to enjoy."

He went on: "We’re pleased to be able to help Deliveroo with this community effort and hope it is a great success and gets the community participation and support it deserves.”

Arabella Jenkins from Deliveroo added: “These moments when we get together with friends and family are special and deserve amazing food and drink to go with them, but it’s equally important to safeguard the local environment and play our part in ensuring we keep the Grand Canal clean.
