Mixed fortunes for two Kildare towns in IBAL Litter League

Naas and Maynooth had mixed fortunes in the IBAL League

The latest IBAL results, which only covers two Kildare towns, has claimed mixed fortunes for the two towns.

IBAL, Irish Business Against Litter, says that litter in Maynooth has increased to such a degree that it pushes the university town out of their ‘Clean to European Norms’ category to the ‘Moderately Littered’. It is now, according to their Anti-Litter League, 32nd out of 40 towns surveyed. 

Naas on the other hand is now at seventh in the League, with, the authors noted, a couple of sites recently improved, namely Poplar Square and the Harbour.

In Maynooth, while the latest report praises sites such as NUI Maynooth, St. Mary’s School and the Harbour Park, the most heavily littered site surveyed in Maynooth was the Main Street. Maynooth Train Station, Aldi Car Park and the Recycle Facility at Aldi were moderately littered, they claimed.

In Naas areas like the North Main Street, the approach road from Ballymore Eustace and the Fairgreen came in for praise.
