Excellent Result for Sligo

Excellent Result for Sligo in Latest Litter Survey

The Cathaoirleach of Sligo County Council Councillor Martin Baker has welcomed the results of the latest IBAL survey which has ranked Sligo as 8th out of 40 towns / cities surveyed and deemed ‘Cleaner than European Norms.’

According to the Cathaoirleach

‘This is excellent news for the people of Sligo, and is deserved recognition of the tremendous work being carried out by our Council staff and Tidy Towns volunteers.  The report highlighted the fact that the sites inspected were not only clear of litter, but also exceptionally well presented and maintained, and this is a tribute to our Roads and Parks staff who take great pride in enhancing our parks and recreation areas’

Director of Services Tom Kilfeather said

‘There is enormous goodwill towards the Tidy Towns programme, it has energised our communities and the results are clear for all to see.  I am delighted to see these efforts formally acknowledged, Sligo County Council looks forward to continuing our support for the Tidy Towns volunteers as they seek to build on this very encouraging result.’
