Its been mentioned a few times that the state of the streets in deteriorating badly and the level of rubbish and waste left on Green lanes is becoming a health hazard.
I have spent the last week complaining on the phone to the council and its become clear that until they receive a sustained, high volume of complaints, then nothing will change.
Therefore I beg you all to complain as often as you can to the following email adresses:
Instead of typing my thoughts on the problem, I have coied my most recent email which I think covers it off:
Happy emailing... lets get the streets clean!

I would Like to make a complaint and draw your attention to the litter problem on Green Lanes in Haringey (up and down the entire length of the ladder)
Vieolia's contract is up for renewal so you might want to Cc the Ceo to any correspondence https://www.ceoemail.com/s.php?id=ceo-9584
None of the shops use Veolia. They all have individual contracts for rubbish collection. What happens is that all the firms collecting rubbish in London can bid for this work and it's why you get Islington and Hackney branded rubbish lorries rat running the ladder at night after they do their one or two shops on Green Lanes.
probably a good idea to copy in your local councillors too...
Does anyone have their email address?
You can look up the contact details of your local councillor online, on the council website. It depends which ward you are in. https://www.minutes.haringey.gov.uk/mgFindMember.aspx
To be fair, Veolia do collect the waste most of the time, but there is a strict timetable for residents who live above the shops to put out their waste and where to leave it, (see the signs on some of the lamp posts). If memory serves me right there are 2 time slots per day and Veolia collects after the time slot expires.
At the end of the day it's down to folks behaving responsibly and not in an anti-social manner.
Biggest issue is that the Borough's Population is growing faster than Services can cope with.
Joys of council Cuts that has allowed more properties to be converted to multi occupancy. Without upgrading Services.
Scavenger Crews collect swept rubbish from Council Allocated collection points. There are at least Four Vehicles Operating a double day Shift
Current Waste Contractor is one of the Large Groups in the Country. From reports Read none are perfect
Majority use Agency Staff . And due to cuts Councils does not have enough Street Enforcement Officers to Enforce Environment Act
