Grassed area covered in litter: Park between Morden Hill and Egremont House

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

Grassed area/ Park between Morden Hill and Egremont House, SE13 is again covered in litter. This problem is still ongoing.

Domestic refuse is regularly blown over this grassed area whenever it is windy from the bin store outside Egremont House. This the does not get cleaned up with any frequency.

Refuse Hopper/ Bin Store in Front of Egremont House creates a massive litter problem in the adjacent area - because it does not have a ‘roof’ of any kind, so when there's strong wind, litter is blown over the whole area. Most contemporary bin stores have some kind of roof or cover for this reason. A simple solution to this would be to make of roof / covering over it with bird netting. It would save a huge amount of man hours cleaning up all the trash and improve the state of the estate immensely.

    Other side - each white dot further out on the grass is trash.

    Grass looks quite clean. And has also been cut. Looks lovely for now.

  • Yes, in good condition currently—well done. As soon as there's wind, though, it will be covered in trash blown over from the refuse hopper store.

    This morning, I removed one rubble sack full of takeaway litter from the top end of this park (Mc Donald’s, Costa, etc). See image. It was strewn everywhere.

    - Caretakers need to litter-pick at top end of park. - Litter bin needs installing at park entrance on Morden Hill/ Connington Road. - Park needs RBG signage/ banner to create awareness of litter responsibility and 1k fine for this.

  • Constant littering near park footpath entrance. Litter bin needs installing at park entrance on Morden Hill/ Connington Road. and Park needs RBG signage/ banner to create awareness of litter

    Looks great. Thank you to the estates team for keeping this area clean for us.

  • Agreed. The Caretakers have done an excellent job in the last few months: most of the time this park is in a good state.

    There’s some littering here, but it does get cleaned fairly rapidly: mostly takeaway litter left by young people from the estate, and one hipster from the new developments opposite who left cider bottles every evening.

    The above is why I brought up the need for a litter bin and anti-littering signage/ banners/ graphics.
