Recycling update

Its been a few weeks now since the new recycling plans started in the people's republic of Greenwich, we're still seeing rubbish on the streets after the bin men have been around in the evening. These are of course not just our reports as we here at Greenwich Watch Towers are still being regularly emailed with stories from around the borough about the new system. As well as seeing some of the more horrific ones in the comments we have also spotted that BBC London wants to look into some of them. Take a look at the bottom of this story, here, and let them know what's life is like in Greenwich:

Have looked at the "here" link, cant wait to see if those chosen to appear will be cherry picked, or if we will be treated to a report on how it really works

Or perhaps how the system is 'really not working'!

I hear three vans a week coming to our area now - replacing the 2 visits bi weekly, and one on the alternate weeks. So there are now 6 pick ups compared to the original 3 every 2 weeks - very environmentally friendly.

We are treated to the sight of more bins, bags and any old rubbish strewn around the already very dirty streets of Greenwich than ever.

Communal properties i.e. blocks of flats are exempt from this new so called 'greener regime' - they simply recycle into one and all bin - and refuse bins takes the rest.

It's a shame Cllr Sidhu's committment to green issues does not extend beyond rubbish - which does indeed make it all a load of rubbish indeed.

I think they'll have to spend another £123,000 to bury this bad news.
I'm sure that the Greenwich Time toilet roll will proclaim it as a runaway success regardless.

re the cherry picking, i did mean the BBC would be more likely to select the few that are with the council

I wonder if any PR departments or companies are being lined up to bombard the BBC with good news stories?
Best keep an eye on the publicity and green, blue black budget ......
