Southfield Waste Collection Still 'Rubbish'
Survey finds street with most problems is St Alban's Avenue
The Southfield ward councillors say they have been "inundated" with responses to their survey on Ealing council's waste collection and street cleansing.
Only 21% (one in five people) said they thought that the quality of street cleansing and litter picking in the area was good or very good. In terms of the collection of household waste and recyclables, 70% of residents thought the service was less than good. A total of 78% of residents had contacted the Council to report problems with the waste collection.
The street with the most issues was St Albans Avenue. One resident told the survey; "During our Monday collection, so much recyclable rubbish is left on the road and there is NO cleaner to pick it up afterwards."
Streets in the Southfield Ward area have continued to be the “worst in the borough” for dirt and litter, according to local Councillor Gary Malcolm, who said recently that if he bought a brush he could do a better job himself.
