Has anyone seen the litter SWAT teams around town this morning, there must be 30 or 40 of them scattered all over the city picking up papers etc, great to see !
Have not seen them, but it is a great idea.
THAT'S what that was as i was coming down henry street! five of them in visi-vests, i counted as i thought it was a case of the council being unusually conscientious! i knew it wouldn't be the police looking for evidence as they weren't wearing the white oompa loompa outfits, but that's what it looked like- combing the footpaths for "evidence"! and even more embarrassingly, there was enough litter on the street to keep all five of them busy!
Sounds much more exciting when the term SWAT is used.....then you read on for a description.
special weapons and tactics......
It's a real pity that people cant actually put their own litter in the bins.
My thoughts exactly.
Get out every Saturday morning and give the front of one’s own house a good sweep with a yard brush.
Then Limerick City would be clean to JP’s Swiss standards!
Would be nice if they would actually install a few more bins if you ask me, there is none on the same side of parnell street except outside the train station which is ridiculous, there are some on the opposite side alrite but thats not good enough in my opinion and Parnell Street aint the only place which could do with a few more bins.
There should be a bin on every corner of every block. Although the slobs in this city will still have to figure out how to use the bloody things.
Totally agree with you 100% on this, last year when I visited Estonia there was a bin on every single Esb pole and Street corner and you got 10cents for each bottle when you brought it back...the result was not one piece of rubbish for miles beleive me I actually went out of my way to find some and couldnt a credit to the people there and a shame on the lazy people living here ..
You wont find any bins in the UK as they employ street sweepers and plus the fact bins are a target for insane people to plant bombs in.
Fair play to them getting out there and doing it just a pity others have such a disregard for where we live
last year when I visited Estonia . . . . and you got 10 cents for each bottle when you brought it back...the result was not one piece of rubbish for miles . . . .
Having a national system in place where all beverages sold in Ireland carry a refundable deposit is a very effective “carrot” for people not to literally throw money away.
Plastic bottles and cans carry a 25 cent deposit in Germany. I’ve even seen kids collecting them, if they had to good fortune to find them.
