Well done to the residents of Ballinakill Downs, St John's Park, Belvedere Manor and St Herblain/ Richardson's Meadow for their participation in Streetsweeps during May and June. There was a good turn out in each location for the clean ups. It was encouraging for all concerned to see so many becoming involved and making an effort to tidy their area. Both young and old turned up to these Streetsweeps and worked together to tidy their area. These clean ups benefit everyone living in the area, as they encourage all residents to actively participate and take responsibility for litter by carrying out clean-ups in their local areas.
Waterford City Council and WLR FM have teamed up to bring these Streetsweeps back to the communities in Waterford city this summer. These highly popular Streetsweeps involve communities undertaking a clean up of their local area, facilitated and supported by WLR FM and Waterford City Council. These clean ups encourage communities to take action against litter and to take pride in their local environment while having some craic in the process! All six dates were booked quickly this year. The final Streetsweeps will take place in Hillview and Grange Manor.
Remember, any community group or residents association can receive support in carrying out a clean up of litter in their area at any time of the year by contacting Environmental Services in Waterford City Council at 849938 and we will be happy to assist you in planning a clean up and making the necessary arrangements in order to carry it out (e.g. materials, date and location for the collection of the litter, etc.).

The particular company that was being referred to was Google and the reason it had enraged M.P.s in London was because even though it has a big operation there and conducts a lot of business there it pays no corporate tax. It does this by having all of its financial transactions finished here in Ireland. And the company here is …
