I really don't think Veolia should be employing moles.

Nightmare. Did you contact them?

There are a lot of unlabelled bins in my street that haven’t been removed.

Unlabelled brown bins being removed on Underhill this morning - now at 8am (Horniman end)

The same green truck, staffed by Veolia contractors is now reversing, yes reversing, the wrong way down the bus lane on Lordship Lane opposite the Lordship Estate towards Dulwich Library, picking up bins as they go. The single most stupid piece of driving I’ve seen for a while. And yes people have tried to tell them it’s dangerous but are just being waved round.

Hardly anyone in our street has kept their brown bin. We have. What's happened? Other people have started to use it. Southwark council are a***holes.

That was happening to us as well (neighbours using our bin) .. until it got taken away ! It was actually filled up with garden waste once coincidentally the same day our neighbours were gardening

Thirty five pounds is a lot of money to some people.

It’s £25 not £35!

Posted by peckman August 21, 10:18AM

Completely agree but there are many that is really isnt .. and if you dont want to pay dont be cheeky and use other people's!

£25 for the part year (the scheme didn't start until well after April) - it was meant to be pro-rata for £30 for a full year. Whether they stick to £30 when they set the fee for next year is a moot point, of course! Don't hold your breathe on this would be my advise. If so few people are taking the scheme up, they'll probably want to up the fee to get their expected returns for next year, as their revenues will be nowhere near their costs of implementation this year, I'm guessing.

This is just the start..

I would not be surprised if Blue and Green bins were next.
Charged by weight.

Absolutely agree, and don't pay for the service by all means. But then don't use your neighbour's bin who has paid without asking or offering a contribution! Most people have kept their bins and subscribed where we are, but I know of a couple who are sharing by agreement. If someone was in difficulties, I'm sure the OP would be happy to come to an arrangement if asked. People just need to show a bit of basic manners.

I think you're safe there, unless they change the law. Councils have a statutory duty and legal obligation to remove residential waste including recycling without separate charge (i.e. within council tax). It's only because garden waste is specifically listed as an additional service in the relevant regs that the Council is able to charge for this.

It used to be that hedge and grass clippings were dumped in the green bins before the advent of the brown bins. They were collected.

Everyone in my street put all their rubbish in the giant bins from the flats across the road from me. Its like they are terrified to let the binman see whet they are throwing out. It is so weird.

messageRe: Unlablled Brown Bins removal.
Posted by snoopy17 August 25, 10:02AM

Whats the point in putting your food rubbish in the small brown bin. The binmen are walking past them and not emptying them.they are too lazy to pick it up.

Veola just delivered a Big Brown bin AND a pile of garden waste bags. to a house
a few doors up from me. They took the Brown bin away a few weeks ago.

Bin was taken even though subscription was paid. Has anyone else in that situation managed to get a new bin?

Not exactly the same scenario but our brown bin was swiped by a neighbour just before the new scheme began - I emailed Southwark’s environmental team () and they sorted the delivery of a new one.

SE24 bins removed today - my green waste was collected on friday and I had filled it and was outside when the guy came past. He told me he was collecting all the bins who hadn't paid for the subscription, (i've not paid for subscription),i said thats fine but I had already filled it, he said no problem, he is going to dump it in one of the bins with a label. so this could be the reason why people are finding random green waste in their bins.

I have had my big brown bin taken but I paid for a sticker. Does anyone know who to call to get it back? Have emailed council and been passed round various departments when I call up.

Is it gone forever?!

have looked around and asked neighbours but bin still hasn't returned.

Same here ... no one seems to know at the council

Same here. Some people on my road have stickered bins, but most have been removed. But is a shambles.

To add to our story, I caught a woman using our brown bin (an enormous black bin bag of apples). Despite telling her it wasn't a public bin and that you can't put black plastic bags in them anyway, she just shrugged her shoulders and walked off. Later I saw her drag someone else's brown bin all the way from the other end of the road and put it outside her house.

People just don't give a s**t. We're getting a hotbin.

Ed am, now that you know where she lives, you can return her apples to her!
