Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is delighted to announce the launch of its Tidy Districts Competition for 2024.  

The Tidy Districts competition offers Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council an opportunity to recognise and reward the voluntary efforts of residents’ associations, tidy district and tidy town groups to enhance their local environment.  

While Tidy Districts began with a focus on anti-litter, its brief has expanded over the years to recognise and encourage the contributions of communities in the areas of biodiversity, community engagement, waste prevention and climate action.  

Completed application forms should be returned or submitted by 5pm, Friday 28th, June 2024.  

Applications can be completed online and submitted via the dlr submit portal.
