Anti Litter League
Meath County Council
Anti Litter League
Given the high standards which are consistently achieved throughout the Anti Litter League, a new standard was introduced into the competition, allowing towns and villages to achieve a ‘Medal’ standard.
Once a town or village consistently achieves a specific standard over each and every judging period throughout the competition, they will be awarded a Medal.
The standards are set as follows:
Over 85% for each round of Judging – Bronze Medal
Over 90% for each roundof Judging – Silver Medal
Over 95% for each round of Judging – Gold Medal
Once you have achieved a medal, 2 plaques will be erected on entry roads to your town or village indicating your achievement in the Anti Litter League.
The plaques will be erected by Meath County Council during May each year, in time for the National Tidy Towns judging which begins in June.
These medals will remain in place until superceeded by your next achievement in the competition.
In 2012 124 community groups and secondary schools have been spring cleaning their areas in a bid to become the most litter free place in the County.
That was the biggest number of participants we have ever had in this competition. Once again in 2013, there are 5 judges visiting each location over the duration of the competition and marks will be lost where litter occurs.
The competition, which starts on 18th February will run until 29th March and an awards evening will be held in later April 2013 when winners will be announced and prizes will be distributed.
This year, as always competition amongst groups will be tough. The judges have a discretional 20 points which they will allocate in line with their general impression of the area. This will help groups where a mis-hap has occurred since their litter sweep, for example a bin falling over, or an incident of illegal dumping.
