What's up with all the litter along the Southbank lately, especially the area between the mayor's office and up towards Hays Galleria. I have walked trough the area several times recently, and the ground seems to be covered with plastic bottles, cans and food wrappings. There used to be bins around here and for some reason they all seem to have vanished. If I were a tourist I would not be impressed. I don't get why there would be so few places to dispose of you rubbish in an area with so many people on foot. Hate to think how much rubbish ends up in the river. The council needs to sort the mess out and put a few bins and recycling units in!

it was the same last summer after we had our (very brief) warm and sunny spell. the area around city hall and the walk along the river is a filthy dump at times

Don't get me started, please.......just do not get me started!!!

I think this is now the third or fourth year of this thread on LondonSE1, and each year it is the same - and sadly the same old litter problem!

Alas, the World to visit the SE1 riverside with a throwaway crisp packet, water bottle and ice cream wrapper...............
