Tralee Deemed ‘Moderately Littered’ In Latest IBAL Survey

Posted by


TRALEE has been found to be ‘moderately littered’ in the latest survey of litter levels by Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL).

The survey has seen Tralee ranked 34th out of 40 towns and city areas visited over the summer. The town was ranked 31st in the final 2017 table released in January.

Killarney is deemed ‘Cleaner Than European Norms’ and is in 6th place up from 16th in 2017 when it was ‘Clean To European Norms’.

An Taisce assessed litter levels over the summer months on behalf of IBAL. 77% of towns and cities were found to be clean. None was deemed a litter blackspot, but five were ‘littered’ or ‘seriously littered’ and scored worse than last year. Fermoy  was named as the cleanest town in Ireland followed by Nenagh and Ennis.

    ‘moderately littered’ are they joking!

    The amount of people littering especially in the housing estates in Tralee is shocking. Children are obviously not being told by their parents that this is their country, town and community and how to respect it.

    I see kids with cans, sweet wrappers and crisp bags casually dump it to the ground instead of taking it home and binning it.
    It starts small with children and gets worse as they get older. The parents are scumbags.

    Where are the litter wardens – I do not see them in town centres or the housing estates enforcing the law.
