Griffith Avenue Community Leaf Collection - 13th & 14th November 2021

Dublin City Council leaves collection arrangements

Saturday 13th November and Sunday 14th November 2021

The big Autumn leaves clear-up has already started on Griffith Avenue. Residents have started clearing the paths outside their homes and raking and bagging leaves for collection by Dublin City Council.

The AHAA has been advised that on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th November 2021 Dublin City Council will provide a dedicated leaves collection service for Griffith Avenue.

Over the two days, the Council will deploy all its resources for the northside, including road sweepers, mini sweepers for the footpaths and cycleway and collection trucks, to Griffith Avenue. The Council has advised that this year all leaves gathered by residents and volunteers will need to be bagged for collection.

Residents can order bio bags by emailing, by phoning or texting 0851448527 or by contacting any of the AHAA Committee members. The bio bags should only be used for leaves and small weeds.

Throughout the weeks leading up to and on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th November 2021 filled bio bags should be left in a public space that is convenient for residents and which can be easily accessed by Council workers for collection. The raking and bagging work on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th will start at 10am and continue into the afternoon.

AHAA members and volunteers will be available along the Avenue with supplies of bags and some equipment to help with the task. All are welcome to help with the task. If you can assist, for an hour or so, particularly, over the course of the two days your neighbours will be glad of the support.
