I recently heard that the drastically improved refuse collection in my area of SE1 (Old Kent Rd) is due to Southwark Council using a French refuse collection service. Does anyone know anything about this? I am curious as well as hoping this is a long term arrangement. Refuse collection here now happens really often and everything is left really spick and span, hurrah!
The evening before last, walking home from work along Tower Bridge Road and Grange road, the roads and pavements were absolutely spotless. Usually all you notice around the Barclays on the corner is the rubbish blowing along the ground in the wind, but there wasn't a bit of paper anywhere to be seen. So someone has done a fantastic job. I just hope it lasts.
It's the small one Reece that goes from bartholomew street accross to searles road...load of schoolkids use it, it's a health risk.
pity they can't plant trees on the roundabout island that flower and fruit!
