People in Dundalk are more litter conscious than Drogheda people, if the number of litter fines issued during June is anything to go by.

36 fines were issued in total in Louth over this period, with the other 16 issued in the remaining County wide area.

There was one fine issued for dog fouling in June in the whole County.
