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 September 2020. The committee will be at the entrance to the estate at 10.30am providing you with bags, gloves and litter pickers.

Overdue: Estate Maintenance Fees

The estate maintenance fee for 2020 is €30 per household. This equates to less than 0.58 cent per week per household to keep our green areas cut and tidy. Our records show that a number of households have yet to make payment. Therefore, the deadline to complete payment has been extended to Sunday, 4 October 2020.

Thank you to those households that have already made payment. A full list of households that have made payment will be published on our website in mid-October.

Maintenance Fees Now Due

Thank you to the 57 households (19 from Beech Court, 6 from Beech Park, 14 from Beech Grove and 18 from Beech Drive) that have so far (up to 22 July 2020) 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.

Littering issue in Greenfields

Over the last number of week the amount of litter in and around Greenfields has become a cause for concern.

All residents are reminded to secure wheelie bins. Parents are asked to remind their children to not leave rubbish on green areas and footpaths. Homeowners and landlords are asked to attend to and maintain the areas in close proximity to their property.

And finally to dog owners – If you go to the bother of picking up your dogs poop in a bag please bring the bag home with you. Do not dispose of the bag in the estate shrub bed and green spaces.

Maintenance Fees 2020

Maintenance fees for grass cutting are due now. For 2020, the Greenfields Residents Association are looking for a contribution of €30 per household. This equates to less than 0.58 cent per week per household to keep our green areas cut and tidy. Payment can be made here before 31 August 2020.

Myrtle Landscaping have been contracted to maintain the green areas and open spaces for 2020. They will commence cutting the green areas from July 2020. If you have any questions about the 2020 Maintenance Fees please email greenfieldswaterford@live.com.
