Missed refuse collection

Reported via iOS in the Missed Collection category anonymously at 16:32, Monday 6 January 2020

Sent to Lewisham Borough Council 3 minutes later

Black refuse bins have not been emptied on Capstone Road since 16/12. Our bin is now full, neighbours’ bins are overflowing and rubbish bags, as well as loose rubbish, are strewn over the footpaths. If rubbish is not collected until 13/1, it will have been FOUR WEEKS since the last collection. There is NO MORE ROOM IN THE BINS for any more rubbish. This is wholly unacceptable; it is an eyesore, a public health hazard, and a perfect way to attract foxes and other scavengers, and must be remedied as quickly as possible. Please arrange a refuse collection IMMEDIATELY.

  • Bins still not collected, despite problem being reported to council both by LoveLewisham and directly. Not even the common courtesy of a reply. Disgraceful. Utterly disgusted with Lewisham.

  • No response at all from Lewisham at any point to any of the homeowners who reported this issue. The missed collection was never rectified; we were simply forced to live in unsanitary conditions until the next scheduled collection.

  • Not fixed. Just not done. BIG difference.
