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.
