Black bins not collected on Thursday 12 Oct

Reported in the Missed Collection category anonymously at 18:30, Thursday 12 October 2017

Sent to Lewisham Borough Council 5 minutes later

My bins were placed outside my house on the corner of Birch Grove and Newstead Road on Wednesday night late and this morning the black bins of my house and my neighbours have not been picked up, somebody has been putting food waste and a vodka bottle inside - now that we have collection every two weeks this is a nuisance. This is the second time that someone else drops food that should be in a bag (and now put in the small bin) straight into the bin (last time it was in my green bin)... I want to have this bins emptied please and not have to wait two weeks now - I am not sure what has been thrown into my bin so I do not want to pick with my hands either!

  • Last Thursday (9th November), the bins were not connected again - so I've put them out this week just in case I got the date wrong - but NO collection whatsoever, and somebody left a sick bowl with a vomit on top and went all over the place - really disgraceful - This is the 3rd time somebody is throwing food with no bags in that bin and today I've got vomit - how can I get my bin picked up and not having somebody vandalised it?
