Groups are invited to take part in Meath County Council’s Anti-Litter Initiative 2019. You may have taken part in the past or may be an entirely new entrant. Either way this is a great opportunity for your group to get involved in your local community. It is not a competition, each participating group is trying to achieve a high standard of cleanliness in their local area, and there is a grant for those that achieve high standards over the whole month of the competition.

There will be 2 rounds of judging over a 4 week period.
Judging will take place from the 20th March until the 17th April.
