I was told to expect them by the end of this week (which is what I was told two weeks ago). They said it was being done by an outside contractor so they couldn't say more than that. My brown bin was emptied on Monday as per usual but it wasn't emptied last week. I live in John Ruskin Street in SE5 (I work in Lower Marsh, SE1).
Baz wrote:Baz, well done for getting your sticker for the brown bin through the post.? It's nearly 7 weeks since I paid the Council £25. I've put my bin out twice in recent weeks with a copy of the receipt taped onto the lid, adding I am still without the sticker and my house number is painted on the bin. I gather the stickers are being produced/'distributed by someone other than Veolia. From end of June (i.e. now) they are meant to be confiscating the brown bins if they are sticker-less. Help! This is a totally mismanaged scheme.I received my garden waste sticker yesterday through the post. Hurrah! Now we shall see if I receive the requested small brown bin for food waste. I'm hoping it will be delivered on Monday when they empty the large brown bin for garden waste. Fingers crossed!
