Has anyone else noticed (or is it just me getting old and grumpy) how sporadic the street cleaning is within SE1?
There seem to be roads that don't get cleaned for weeks. Last Saturday I picked up over 50 pieces of rubbish from my street as it was starting to look so bad. The Southwark Council
web site seems to suggest that any street in Southwark should get cleaned a minimum of twice per week. This certainly isn't happening in my area - The roads off Southwark Park Road: Alma Grove
, Fort Road
, Balaclava Road
I've written to the street cleaning department today telling them about this so hopefully things will improve.
On a more preventative note, does anyone know if we can lobby the council to install some rubbish bins, as there are none in my road?
