The Greenfields Residents Association supported by Waterford City Council plan to have an estate Clean-up Day Sunday 4th November from 12pm – 1pm. This is a great opportunity to lend a hand to ensure our estate is well maintained and presented.

Residents will be meeting at No. 1 Beech Court (near the entrance of the estate) at 12 noon. Bags, pickers and gloves will be provided.  All motorists are asked to pay particular attention and reduce speed on the day to ensure we have a safe Clean-up Day for all.

Halloween Waste

25 10 2012

Around this time every year Waterford City Council receive an increasing number of calls about waste being collected and stored for Halloween bonfires. This waste can be anything from wooden pallets to tyres, mattresses, couches, etc.  If you are concerned about waste being stored in the Greenfields area, please report it to the Waterford City Council Enforcement Team by phoning 051 849563 or emailing environservices@waterfordcity.ie

This is especially important in the days leading up to Halloween, as the waste that is accumulating could be used to build a bonfire. The Waterford City Council Enforcement Team uses Waste Management Acts 1996 – 2005 and the Waste Management (Prohibition of Waste Disposal by Burning) Regulations 2009 to prevent waste collecting and being burned. Over the coming weeks, any households that are illegally storing waste in their gardens will be asked to remove the waste and dispose of it appropriately.

Should material builds up on green areas before Halloween, Waterford City Council staff will remove this material.  Additionally members of the Greenfields Residents Association and the Greenfields Neighbourhood Watch Team will be actively monitoring the Greenfields area over the Halloween period, reporting any buid up of material to Waterford City Council and An Garda Siochana.

Neighbourhood Watch Alert!

4 10 2012

Over the last number of weeks there has been a large group of teenagers loitering in and around the Greenfields area. This group have been causing a lot of noise, disruption and partaking in anti-social behaviour i.e. throwing ‘bangers’ into residents gardens / at houses, breaking in side gates etc.

In particular, this group of teenagers seem to gathering near the small green area at the junction of Beech Drive/Beech Park (on the small wall). The majority of the this group do not live in Greenfields nor do they realise they are on CCTV in this area.

With the Halloween period approaching, all residents are encouraged to please report such behaviour and this group to the Gardai should you notice them. Waterford Garda Station can be contacted 24 hours on 051 305339 or on 051 305300 and will attend to the estate in a patrol car to move on this group and to take any necessary action in relation to anti-social behaviour/vandalism.
