Bexley council imposes petty rules about bin lids and charges for
removing large items, fly tipping will not go away. A single settee costs £30 to
get rid of. In Greenwich there is a much more generous charging formula for
things like three piece suites and in Newham it’s all free.
Then there is the £33 charge for garden waste. That will take a while to get used to. Even so, the amount of rubbish dumped in Belvedere at the moment is rather shocking. Is it the same everywhere?
Probably the burned out and aptly named Vauxhall Zafira doesn’t count as fly tipping but all these pictures were taken in the space of ten minutes. I could have taken more pictures of broken food waste bins if I had gone on to private property. So much for councillor Craske’s story about only ten having been reported broken.
