Sligo has again been deemed ‘Clean to European Norms’ in the latest Litter League table, which has been published by Irish Businesses Against Litter (IBAL).
Sligo ranked 29 out of 40 large towns/urban areas, which were surveyed.
While the ranking sees Sligo drop eight places, its designation as a town which is clean to European norms is to be welcomed.
The survey is published every quarter by IBAL. The latest results cover the closing quarter of 2015.
Litterkenny, which was voted Ireland’s Tidiest Town in 2015, is in 36th position.
The top ranked towns in the latest IBAL survey were Drogheda, Dungarvan, Dun Laoighaire, Kilkenny and Longford.
75% of the towns surveryed were deemed ‘Clean to European Norms’ in the survey.
The IBAL Anti-Litter League was developed in 2002, and aims to mobilise local authorities into action on the subject of litter. It involves An Taisce regularly monitoring litter levels in towns and cities across Ireland according to international standards.
