Dundalk: 26th out of 40 towns / cities surveyed. Clean to European Norms

There were no heavily littered areas in Dundalk. Some of the very good sites surveyed included Dundalk Grammar School, Clanbrassil Street and Dundalk Train Station, with the latter registering a noted improvement over a previous survey. The V & W Recycle Facility was nicely adorned with planting and was impeccable throughout.  Dundalk Institute of Technology was let down by the very heavy levels of cigarette butts – it is quite unusual to see a Green Flag Campus environment so heavily plagued by cigarette butts. 

 

Dundalk Grammar School:  Grade A.  This was an excellent site – not only was it clear of litter but

Latest results for IBAL Anti-Litter survey for Dundalk.

Dundalk:  Joint 29th out of 40 towns / cities surveyed.  Clean to European Norms.

 

A slight slip in cleanliness in Dundalk.

Castleblaney Approach Road:  Grade B.  Food related litter was very much in evidence along this route,
