This year Nenagh is the tidiest town in Tipperary, that is according to the latest round of the Irish Business Against Litter’s Anti Litter League (IBAL).
The town has risen in the ranks from 49th place (Littered) in 2010, to now 18th place in the league, and deemed “Clean to European Norms” by IBAL. Nenagh now ranks above Clonmel, latter in 28th place and Tipperary Town, holding 51st position (Littered) .
Thurles, previously deemed “Clean to European Norms,” in 2010 by IBAL, did not feature in this round of the league.
The Nenagh litter report, which was carried out by An Taisce, for IBAL, pointed out that Nenagh languished in 49th position last year and that their new ranking goes to demonstrate what can be achieved with a community approach to tackling litter problems.
Martin Langton of Nenagh Tidy Towns Committee, stated that he now looked forward to new Local Authority driven initiatives to tackle existing problems in 2012, and further commented, that this result is a huge tribute to those involved in the towns anti-litter drive. It was also his fervent hope that this result would encourage people to continue in their efforts.
