C/taker & street cleaners not cleaning

Reported via Android in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 14:59, Wednesday 21 September 2022

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

Another week gone and the council operatives have not cleaned our street, yet again. Our car parks and roads and pavements have only been cleaned once in the last 2 months...but the operatives park their van in our street...clean the rest of the estate and leave our road. It is obvious this is being done on purpose and we want you to stop it. The car parking spaces are cleaner because the wind keeps blowing all the leaves and litter into our gardens on the roadside..a problem we never had when there was no parking bays.

  • We pay the council a service charge to keep the area clean. But....they are not doing their job. Week after week,year after year, we have complained to the council about the caretakers and street cleaners not cleaning up in Tellson Avenue and surrounding areas and buildings. But, we are not being listened to. The caretaker and street cleaners work to their own agenda. This behaviour has been going on for years now and we have been reporting it for years. But, we are still making these reports because the council just do not care. When they have done their estate inspections, the councillors and managers were made aware of the trouble we have here. On the last inspection, the MP for our area was on the estate inspection and was told of these problems. Yet we are still in the same position. So to sum up.....the operatives do what they like, when they like, then, when complaints are made, they double down and just do NOT do their job. Which begs the question," If they are missing out large swathes of their work, what are they doing with the time they are being paid to do". Answer.....dossing. This needs to be stopped now. Everywhere you walk in Greenwich, their is rubbish on the streets, in parks,on road verges etc, all because the operatives do not do their jobs with anywhere near a decent quality. All the rubbish in these pics was taken years ago and just recently as well. The same pieces of rubbish are still there. Greenwich council are screwing over their own tenants on a regular basis and refuse to listen or do anything about it.
