2016 Mayo Litter Action League May Results

Love where you live logoThe 2016 Mayo Litter Action League May Results are in. The Swinford judging took place sometime from Monday the 2nd of May, to Tuesday the 31st of May. This is Swinford’s first year in the Mayo Litter Action league competition and the format has changed slightly from previous years.

Each town and village in the competition is awarded €1,000 to begin with. Each item of litter seen on the day of judging costs €1, which is then deducted from your starting fund. The more items of litter found, the higher the cost, and the more we loose! In the April judging we lost €130 and were going into the month of May with a remaining balance of €870.
