The latest survey in the Anti-Litter League by business group Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) shows Dundalk is up the league ladder from ‘moderately littered’ to ‘clean to European norms’ and in 29th position. IBAL has warned that vacant properties in towns are a growing concern, despite continued progress on litter nationwide.
Dundalk had another satisfactory result. Over half of the sites surveyed in the town were moderately littered and the remainder were top ranking, including a couple of the approach roads. The V & W Recycle facility got a special mention as it was in such good shape, described as being ‘in pristine condition’.
