Jason Prentis and Cllr. Braithwaite are visiting us on Saturday 24th October. We want planters to improve the environment and prevent our streets being used as a free tipping ground. The council should act to limit the damage.
Postbox Mervan Rd and Rattray Rd junction 12pm for anyone wanting to speak to Lambeth’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Sustainability.
Preventing dumped rubbish
When I go out to meet Street Champions, the most commonly discussed issue is dumped rubbish. Whether it’s a pile of builders’ rubble, a random mattress or a black bag next to a bin, dumped rubbish is causing much disquiet, so we’re stepping up our efforts to reduce it.
Caroline of Brixton Community Base says:
‘ the corner of Talma and Probert is a prime site for fly tipping. BCB have a large bin which we pay the council for, unfortunately it acts as a magnet for dumping – everything from domestic rubbish to mattresses and furniture. There is often no attempt to put it in the container. BCB could face fines for this although it is not our rubbish, and it is definitely a health and safety risk. Be great if you could alert Jason Prentis & Cllr. Braithwaite to this.’ She can’t make it this Saturday but Street Champions wish anyone with a view can let us know even if you can’t be there via: firstname.lastname@example.org

They removed the mattress and builders rubbish dumped on Talma rd last week after a lot of nagging by me – any maybe others…
