From Malin Head to Newtown, people were up early and tackling the problems of litter across the region.
Many local councillors, including the Mayor of Buncrana Michael Grant, led the way by example.
Donegal County Council kindly provided councillors with plastic nags, brightly-coloured bibs and other materials to distribute.
Our pictures show the result of yesterday’s clean-up by the Newtowncunningham Community Devlopment Initiative.
Other clean-ups are now being planned for throughout the spring and summer months.
