JP McManus Benevolent Fund donates Glutton. Limerick city Council took ownership of The Glutton, a new outdoor cleaning solution. The Glutton is a dust, noise and exhaust-free litter vacuum that has revolutionised the work of road maintenance staff around the world. Mayor Kieren O’ Hanlon accepted the machine on behalf of Limerick City Council from Sue Ann Foley, Chairperson of the JP McManus Benevolent Fund today.The Team Limerick Cleanup (TLC) branded Glutton will be managed by a Council operative, who has traded in his broom and his litter picker for a modern machine. Easy to use, the Glutton industrial vacuum cleaner saves time and makes work more comfortable, reduces effort, and improves health and safety. In addition, its electric version is perfectly silent and environmentally friendly. The vacuum operates on batteries which are 100 % electric powered, it vacuums up all kinds of waste for up to 12 hours.
Commenting on the presentation, Sue Ann Foley, Chairperson of the JP McManus Benevolent Fund said; “We are delighted to hand this machine over to Limerick County Council today. The council has been instrumental in Team Limerick Clean-up and the Benevolent Fund are hugely grateful for their contribution to the initiative. ‘The Glutton’ is set to complement our Good Friday clean-up and we look forward to seeing it in operation around the streets of Limerick.”
Accepting the Glutton, Mayor Kieran O’Hanlon commented; “We are thrilled that Limerick is the first and only city in the country to use The Glutton. The machine is a huge asset to the on-going cleaning measures the Council has in place. Not only is it environmentally friendly, but it can be used in a number of locations from pavements, public roads, and carparks. On behalf of Limerick City Council, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the JP McManus Benevolent Fund for this kind donation.”
