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).
