Congratulations Dun Laoghaire – Irish Business Against Litter Survey Results

02. 02. 2016

Dún Laoghaire has won second place in the Irish Business Against Litter survey, becoming the only town in Dublin to win an award in the annual IBAL survey.
The Dún Laoghaire Business Improvement District would like to thank and congratulate all the volunteers who have done such an excellent job over the past year.

The town of Dún Laoghaire finish second out of the 40 towns and cities surveyed across the country – the town’s highest ever finish – in the most recent Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) rankings. The results of the survey show Dún Laoghaire was awarded the ‘Cleaner than European Norms’ classification by the judging panel and provides further evidence of the Council’s commitment to maintaining a clean county.
Along with all of the other major town centres in the county, the streets in Dún Laoghaire are swept 7 days a week, with a dedicated pedestrian green machine also working in the town on a seven day rota.
Our recent county-wide installation of new solar powered, compacting ‘Smart Bins’ – which monitor real time levels of waste and inform staff when individual bins need to be emptied – has helped streamline our cleansing service.
BID are currently setting up a new ‘Tidy Town’s’ working group and would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in getting involved. Please contact [email protected]
