Anti Litter Initiative

The Final Results for the Anti Litter Initiative 2017 have now been published. Please see link below.

The standard was very high with all participants achieving over 90% across both rounds of judging, and many towns and villages achieving Silver and Gold Medal Standard.

The Anti-Litter Initiative is run by Meath County Council and is an opportunity for your local group or residents association to get involved with helping to improve the appearance of your area.  It is designed to encourage volunteerism within local communities.

The Anti-Litter Initiative runs every year in March and April and those areas taking part are judged twice during this period.  Judges award marks out of 100 for the absence of litter and the general appearance of the area.

Whilst this is not a competition, those areas which score over 90 marks are entitled to a grant.  In 2016 this was €150 for those scoring 91-95 marks and €200 for 96-100 marks. 

Groups who enter the initiative can also claim a start up pack containing gloves, bags and litter pickers.
