We are now six months into Camden Council’s new waste collections scheme and, as predicted, there have been many complaints.
Liberal Democrats firmly believe in the principle of increased recycling and cutting down on the amount of rubbish sent to landfill.
However, Camden Labour have made a real mess of these changes. We have asked why the changes were not piloted in one area to start with, so some of the problems could have been sorted out in advance.
Lib Dem Cllr Flick Rea secured a 30% discount for elderly and disadvantaged people on the much-hated garden waste charge. However, Camden is so mean that it has given this no publicity in the hope that everyone will pay the full charge. So if you are entitled to the discount, claim it now by contacting Veolia on 020 7812 5000.
Local resident Matthew Kirk says, “Labour have made a real mess of their rubbish collection service. It’s time they conducted a thorough review of what’s gone wrong, and pushed their contractors to do a better job.”
