Littering in Greenfields

Littering has once again become a problem in Greenfields. The volume of rubbish being left on green areas and open space is not acceptable.

It’s not up to the residents association or other adult residents to pick up the rubbish around the estate. The kids and teenagers of the estate are the problem. Parents are reminded to encourage their children to act responsibly and to put rubbish in a nearby bin.

Maintenance Fees Due Now

Residents are reminded to pay maintenance fees before 31 July 2021

A massive thank you to the 60 households that have so far (up to 1 July 2021) paid the €30 maintenance fee to keep our green areas cut and tidy.

Contributions from all households are required to ensure green areas are cut throughout the year. At present the residents association do not have enough contributions to sustain the cutting of the green areas for the full year.

Please note that all monies collected will only be used for the maintenance of our estate. Any surplus collected will be used for additional maintenance such as weeding, pruning of trees etc. in agreement with residents. However, the priority remains to ensure green areas are cut and well maintained.

Summer Estate Clean-up Day

The level of littering in Greenfields is of serious concern. Over the past number of weeks numerous reports of littering and images have been sent to the residents’ association. Some littering is the result of children/teenagers in the estate having snacks and drinks, other occurrences include wheelie bins overflowing or not being secured properly.

We all have a part to play in combating the litter situation in our estate. Therefore, we are appealing to all residents to lend a hand on Saturday, 26 June 2021. The committee will be at the entrance to the estate at 10.30am providing you with bags, gloves and litter pickers.
