Monaghan County Council purchase first electric sweeper in the country

The latest innovative project that is being spearheaded by Monaghan County Council is the purchase of an electric sweeper, the first in the country. The new Maxvac machine is a state-of-the-art road sweeper which also has multi-function facility that includes blower and litter picker among other devices. The sweeper has an eight-hour battery running capacity and is a cleaner greener response to cleaning our streets and was launched recently at the Civic Offices in Carrickmacross.
