Has anyone else noticed insane amounts of rubbish being dumped along Old Kent Road (alongside the bit of grass between Leroy street and pages walk) and along Bricklayers arms roundabout? It has become really disgusting lately; seems like every morning I come out and it's like a load of drunken teenagers have had a party on the street as there are 100s of cans, takeaway boxes, tissues, etc. all over the place.

It's been happening the past few months, can't work out if it's related to the recent increase in rough sleepers we've had on the bricklayers arms roundabout, but I can't see them getting through quite as many cans as I've seen littered all over the place!

Yes. I've written to the council and Neil Coyle about the rubbish on the roundabout and at the OKR bus top and top of Mandela Way and Pages Walk.

It's not improved and seems to have gotten worse. Because it is badly maintained it has an exponential effect, encouraging others to treat it like a dumping ground.
