Wheelie Bins

15 05 2012

Residents are reminded to securely store their wheelie bins.  A number of incidents of stolen/damaged wheelie bins in Greenfields have been reported to the Residents Association.  Wheelie bins have been taken from outside properties and dumped in the green area at the end of the estate and near the bog/Avondale area.

It is important that bins be secured.  If rubbish from your wheelie bin is found in any public area you could face a fine/prosecution from Waterford City Council under the Litter Pollution Act 1997.  The on-the-spot fine for a litter offence is €150 with a possible maximum fine in court of €3,000.  Please report any missing wheelie bins to the Residents Association and any incidents of rubbish to the Litter Warden of Waterford City Council on 051849563.
