COUNCIL INVITES RESIDENTS TO TALK RUBBISH – TOGETHER
Lewisham council are consulting on changes to waste and recycling services that would affect around 80,000 properties across the borough (all those that typically have collections from a wheelie bin).
Under the title Let’s Talk Rubbish! the council are asking people to say what they think about potential changes to the service that could see:
separate collections of paper
the introduction of a food waste collection
a paid-for garden waste collection
changes to the frequency of some collections.
“The council has to make changes to comply with new regulations introduced on 1 January 2015 and to make sure it can meet a target of 50 per cent of all waste either recycled, reused or composted by 2020 – failure to do so may mean big fines for the council” said a spokesperson.
The consultation lasts until 18 October 2015. Have your say. Go to lewisham.gov.uk let’s talk rubbish
