Action Promised On Bolton Road Flytipping
Council plans CCTV camera for Grove Park recycling site
Hounslow Council may place CCTV cameras near the Bolton Road recycling bins in a bid to deter flytipping. The Council is also considering removing some of the bins in a bid to stop the problem.
Local residents have complained that things have become worse in recent months and say rubbish had been left strewn around the pavement and roads, rats had been sighted, and it was in a dreadful state.
The issue will be discussed at tomorrow's (Tues 8th July) meeting of the Chiswick Area Forum.
A Council investigation to be put before the meeting said that there was a recommendation for the main recycling banks to be removed, leaving the textiles, small electrical and book and CD banks. There were three options for dealing with the situation.
1. Change the containers for paper and plastic as they are often contaminated. This will improve the quality of recycling collected at the site, but may not reduce fly tipping.
"If this recommendation fails to improve the site we can look into removing the remaining banks from the site as a last resort although there is still no guarantee that incidents of fly tipping will stop at this location." says the council report.
