Does anyone who uses this forum live in Antonine Heights?
I've moved in recently and was wondering what the situation with recycling is? Not sure there is a household recycling collection from this building?
Wow, is there seriously still no recycling provision at Antonine Heights? I moved from there over 2 years ago and had rung Southwark Council several times to request recycling bins pointing out the quick win for their recycling targets given how many flats there are in the development.
Extraordinary that nothing has happened in that time!
Southwark's Recycling team are really good in my experience - we have about 8 big blue bins for various things for our building (25 flats). They've done collections within a day of requesting (outside of normal pickup days), and they even remembered to bring the additional glass recycling bin that I had asked the bin-men for when they came to empty them!
Just contact them and I'm sure they'd be happy to set up recycling for your building (provided there's space, of course. Oh, obviously it might be a good idea to clear it with your building manager/ building management co. first though!)
I beleave that southwark council, did provide recycling bins at the end of city walk near morrocco street, but that these were taken away at the residents request of city walk as general rubbish was dumpped next to them. (Though in my experience it was the residents of city walk who i saw walking out of their flats and dumping rubbish).
I dont live in the development but i wondered why the reccyling bins could not be stored next to the regular bins which i see brought up from the garage area.
We had a letter from the managing agents a few months ago saying they were looking into putting some recycling bins in a storage area outside but nothing has happened since. If you face the front door, it's around the left hand side of the building. If you look at the moment, the door to this area has been pulled off its hinges!
Thanks for all the replies, I think I know where those bins are on the junction of Weston and Leathermarket Street, I guess I'll just use those.
Seems strange that nothing has been done for any facilities closer to home, seeing as there are so many flats in the development?
I would imagine a lot of people just won't bother if they have to walk to Weston Street to dispose of their recycling.
If you want something on site it really is up to the residents (leaseholders) to decide what to do. It is not up to managaing agents, who only do what they are asked to do by the flat owners. There are also problems with siting recycling facilities anywhere it is up to those who use them to do so responsibly and correctly....unfortunatly not always what happens.
