A picture of rubbish in Fendyke Road, Belvedere was included in the
photo gallery for the 1st
of the month because of a report a few days earlier about the fly-tipping in
that part of town and the councils failure to clean it up. At the time the
rubbish in my photograph had been there for a week and eight days later
it is still there and the pile has grown. The north west of the borough needs an official dump because
the ones at Crayford and Foots Cray are both as far away from Belvedere as you
can get without crossing the borough boundary. If you havent got a car and
cant afford £27 per item for an official collection a nearby street is an
obvious attraction. Personally I have always found that large items can be cut
into many small pieces and put in the dustbin; over a period of several weeks if necessary.
Opposite where I live B&Q delivered a new bathroom suite last week. There is now an old one and a good deal of miscellaneous rubbish dumped on private land nearby. Its no good having a word with the culprits, they claim not to understand a word of English.
For the record, the diversion signs placed around the area of the burst water main five weeks ago are still littering roads up to a mile away from the incident. Nobody seems to be interested in removing them.
