Huge amount of rubbish in the middle of the pathway

Reported in the Pavements/footpaths category anonymously at 08:54, Mon 21 October 2019 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich 1 minute later

Large amount of domestic rubbish has been here consistently for very long time, obstructing the pathways and making it hard for buggies and disabled people to use the footpath. Uncollected rubbish eventually starts spreading throughout the area harming the environment. If this issue is not addressed within days, I will personally relocate this rubbish to the front of the council doors, so that impact becomes obvious to the council, hopefully then you will consider addressing the underlying cause and justifying your existence.

  • Bags were collected just now, but a pile of rubbish remained uncollected. It’s unbagged and now spreading fast around the area causing environmental damage.

  • Rubbish has been topped up with a new portion. The remaining waste has not been collected for a week. Clearly this issue was ignored by the council. Plastic waste is spreading across Armitage Road and polluting the area.

  • Removing the rubbish once doesn’t solve the underlying problem. Somebody would top up rubbish right after it’s removed. Do you have any plans on sorting out the underlying cause? This issue has been ongoing for years, should it be escalated?

    Can you please create a new job of any more rubbish appears under the flytipping catagory,

    This has been reported under the pavement and footpaths resulting it going to a different department

    Our Envirocrime team have found evidence within these flytips and are making contact with the culprit

  • The rubbish has been topped up immediately. Looks imminent that this issue will remain unresolved during Christmas with the rubbish spreading around the area.

    Could you please update category on the ticket to preserve the history and the fact that the issue has been reported 25 times?

  • Hi the rubbish was removed Sunday this has been topped up by a household, our enforcement team are making enquires nearby

    As previously stated this job can remain open but can you report this under the rubbish category so it Is sent to the correct department

    State changed to: Internal referral

    Posted by Royal Borough of Greenwich at 20:16, Monday 6 January 2020

  • I was hoping you’d request IT team to update the category in the database, such that the full history remains in this ticket and the issue gets proper attention. Is there any reason this can’t be done?

    Creating new tickets each time is pointless since rubbish is topped up shortly after you remove it, as you have already come to realise now.

    I’d suggest to arrange a daily collection of this rubbish if that’s what it takes to keep Greenwich clean.

    Greenwich aims to be London Borough of Culture in 2021. May I suggest to consider informing the audience that rubbish spreading around Greenwich is part of the culture?

  • Rubbish is back. Have you arranged a daily collection of the rubbish? If nothing else works, seems like a reasonable thing to do. If you know who is responsible for this, it would make sense to charge them the bill for special arrangements, too.

  • When I asked them for an update they ignored me, did they ignore you, too? Does the team exist at all? Looks like money laundering to me as nothing changes, rubbish continues to predictably appear in the same place, and predictably spread around the area (image attached). To be honest, I’m not sure why I keep attaching images, seems like a total waste of time... I hope brexit is going well for ya though.
