As it’s hedge cutting time again we would appeal to local community to take advantage of the clipped hedges and collect any papers/bottles that are spoiling the local area. We need everyone to take part as Rosenallis is a huge area to cover. If you find household waste dumped call the Environment Section of Laois County Council to have it collected. We appeal to drivers not to dispose of waste from your vehicle. A few small actions can make a difference. Thank you for your support.
