Do you live in the purple fronted cottage, with a blue car?
Do you have a green wheelie bin?

Do not come on a private estate to dump your rubbish.

Tell me about it!
Pigs in the flats on Snowsfields above the little row of shops (Aquarium place, hair-dressers, cafes etc.) use Guinness as their bin. Bad enough when they fill our bins up so we can't get our rubbish in but they regularly just dump it on the street in front of them.

Indicative of how they view us i'm afraid.

They use our recycle bins to. I've seen them, quiet a few of them walking through our estate to get to Tower Bridge Road dumping their recycling in the bins. Another thing is their dogs on our grass. Makes me so angry.

I'll take issue here to an extent.

Southwark has recently cut its kerbside recycling service to the point that it does more harm than good. Blue boxes, white bags and suchlike sit on pavements for weeks on end. So they attract rats and foxes and their contents end up bestrewing the street.

So what are residents meant to do? Best thing seems to take recycling to the nearest place that has the large wheelie bins that are emptied by being swung on to the back of a binmen's lorry.

And if a lot of those bins happen to be sited in or on the edge of council estates, so be it. I use some that are (though in this case are on a public cul-de-sac).

Complain to southwark council?

This was house hold rubbish, well she put it in the main dust bin. Why couldn't she use her green bin that Southwark Council provide?? There are public recycle bins in Leroy Street, they should use. If our bins get full up our estate starts to look a mess, we do not need residents from the street using our bins.

OK, though I was responding more to your subsequent post:
