I walked past it today and I swear it's getting bigger by the day. The council should come and remove it. Would that be Southwark or Lambeth?

The Speck of Land that Southwark Forgot. I will meander past there tomorrow to check that it's not been magically cleansed by the goblins overnight, a doubly doubtful scenario and then I'll phone Southwark as well. You'd have thought that the food outlets would have done something pro-active to clean their food arenas too, surely it would make would be diners turn away.
Thanks, max33.

I wrote to Cllr Noakes to ask him to raise it with Southwark. It's not so much about it being cleared as understanding why it's there and who isn't paying to get their commercial waste removed.

I'm pretty sure these paladin bins are supposed to be at the back of the restaurants. They were probably moved out of the way when they were resurfacing and no one put them back.

Now, why would that surprise anyone, and what are they using for their waste nowadays? The staff may each have to take a carrier bag stuffed with rubbish home at night.New conditions of employment. I saw the bins, they are horrid. A few more dramatic phone calls are required from witnesses.Assaulted by a rabid pigeon, slipped on a beer can, a rat ran up your leg sort of drama.

There also seems to be a recent (and increasing) problem with litter on Short Street, round the corner from Sainsbury's on The Cut. Dreadful! It doesn't look like commercial waste, but that doesn't make it any more pleasant...

It's from a property being let as holiday accommodation, Lambeth know (but don't seem to be doing much).
