The most recent study by business group Irish Business Against Litter has found Letterkenny in 14th position reclaiming its ‘Clean to European Norms’ status from 2008.
The town had dropped to ‘seriously littered’ in last year’s finale.
They said Letterkenny Leisure Centre was in pristine condition, almost all of the approach roads got the top litter grade and Town Centre was very good, especially considering there were road works taking place at time of litter survey.
Dunnes Stores on Oldtown Road was Grade B and the level of litter was such that it could easily deteriorate to a Grade C.
IBAL is inviting citizens to submit photos of litter black spots in Donegal as part of a “litter twitter” campaign to alert local authorities to litter-ridden areas.
