Recycling bin full again

One of our recycling bins is full again. It was full last Friday. It is the bin for cardboard. We have other two bins but they only have bottle holes which means residents are forced to place recyclables into the normal waste bins. This problem has existed for years and been exacerbated by COVID. It has been documented and reported to Lewisham Council and Pinnacle since March 2020 and neither has done anything to try to fix the problem so recyclables are literally wasted and Lewisham Council does not care and no-one is held to account as both Pinnacle and Lewisham Council point the finger at the other.

  • The bin has been full for about 10 days now so residents have to through recyclables into the normal bins. Pinnacle and Lewisham Council don't care, wasting tax payers money and failing to meet green goals is not a priority.
