We attended Wednesday evening's public exhibition (I just can't bring myself to use the term 'consultation'!) and were appalled to discover that the attitude of the council towards local residents is far worse than we had imagined - it could aptly be ... [ more ]

Would also add that all the supporting evidence/studies/reports put forward by the developer be checked and questioned. It is clear that developers are constantly gaming the system and the council, more often than not, is very willing to go along with ... [ more ]

Wandsworth Recycling

Local Conversations in Wandsworth

Has Wandsworth council given up separate recycling of cardboard, glass etc? I have noticed that rubbish and recycling get put in the same pile for collection in my street and am wondering why we bother separating them if that is the case.

Correct its sorted at the recycling centre to save you, the resident time and to employ some extra staff at the recycling centre. Its a win win. However, I am sure that's still not good enough for some.
