Rubbish still accumulating

Reported via Android in the Parks/landscapes category anonymously at 18:19, Wednesday 7 April 2021

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

On the 3/3/21, i sent a report to yourselves about the state of the bushes and the grassed area behind the carpark, that runs adjacent to shooters hill road. You replied that this would be passed on to one of your teams( caretaking team or parks and landscape team??.). It is now over a month since that report was sent to yourselves. As you can see from the pictures(please expand), the problem is getting worse and has definitely not been attended to by any of your teams. If you come and look at the problem for yourselves,you will see that the problem is a lot worse than it looks in these photos, as i could not get all the rubbish into just three photos. The question has to be, why is no one doing anything about clearing the mess from these areas. I will send some more phots in another report of the same date as today.

  • Hi Greenwich Council: that wheelie bin and all the rubbish was still there yesterday (loads of rubbish around the bushes behind the car parking spaces on Tellson Avenue.) I can't believe someone reported this a week ago and it still hadn't been sorted out by the council. Some poor tenant's probably still wondering where their wheelie bin is! A lot of the tenants on this estate make a lot of effort to keep their gardens neat and tidy outside their houses, and the council is letting all the tenants down by never picking up all the rubbish that people throw down in the green areas all around the estate when they're walking past the estate. Come on Greenwich Council -- please make more of an effort to tidy up all the rubbish thrown about by people coming past our estate. Picking up all the rubbish in the green spaces and pathways around the estate and next to the park will be a nice easy job that is totally safe for any Council staff to do -- you'll be in the open air, all outside, no Covid risks at all, so no excuse for the Council not to start doing it properly. Thanks, Greenwich Council.

  • Thursday 22/04/21: the stolen wheelie bin in the photo (above) taken by a tenant is still there. Greenwich Council, can you please ask your caretaking team to remove this wheelie bin from the bushes? If you can't find it -- it is in the bushes behind the parked cars. (Directly opposite the 2 recycling bins on Tellson Avenue.) It's still there today -- can you please remove the stolen wheelie bin now, Greenwich Council? Thanks.

  • This problem has not been "fixed",as Greenwich council would have you believe. Today, i saw the same young caretaker (who was supposed to clear the leaves on a previous report), walking on the grassed area, with a large bag of rubbish, so i thought he had cleared all of the rubbish left behind by our usual caretaker. How wrong i was. I thought he was doing a good job when i saw him remove the large pieces previously reported(large black item near road and large log near the roadside wall). I then waited for him to leave and went to look at what he had done. Once again, i am left very disappointed, at the calibre of work being done by Greenwich council operatives. The rubbish in the bushes, is still in the bushes. I have reported this yet again, with photos as evidence of what i am reporting and still, the council operatives do not seem to be able to finish a kob properly. There have been a lot of reports on this matter, so we can now assume that the council are either refusing to train caretakers properly, or are actively allowing their operatives to do what ever work they feel like doing, no matter how many times we complain. I urge Clive Efford, to get involved in this problem and get it sorted out. These are people working for his council, who Are Not Working For The People it represents. Some of these people voted for him, some of them are now voting for someone else. Please expand photos to see properly. The bin and tyre inner tube are obvious to see, yet they are still there.
