Labour Group again calls on Westminster Council to take action on fly tipping

Cllr Jason Williams, Labour’s City Management Spokesperson has written to Cabinet Member Cllr Melvyn Caplan to ask for:

  • Reports on the fly tipping hotspots and updates on how these are tackled
  • Better signage at bins on where the most appropriate recycling/collection points are and where large items can be disposed of
  • Better information about how to contact the Council for disposal of large items
  • Reduction in the amount charged for removing items

Cllr Williams said “the responsibility for fly tipping lies with those who dump rubbish in our communities but the Council should be doing more to tackle this. Fly tipping is blighting our streets and the Council Tax payer has to pay for its removal.”

Dear Melvyn

I am writing to raise residents’ concerns about fly tipping in Westminster which continues to be an issue across the City.

I understand you are developing pilots to look at how waste can be better managed but there is increasing concern that fly tipping is continuing to cause a blight on our streets,

While the responsibility for fly tipping lies with those who dump rubbish in our communities we believe the Council could be doing more to tackle this issue and are calling for the Council to take a number of steps to deal with the situation including:

  • Reports on the fly tipping hotspots and updates on how these are tackled
  • Better signage at bins on where the most appropriate recycling/collection points are and where large items can be disposed of
  • Better information about how to contact the Council for disposal of large items
  • Reduction in the amount charged for removing items

Fly tipping is an issue that affects every area of our city and we look forward to working with you to ensure this is dealt with effectively.

Yours sincerely

 

Cllr Jason Williams
Labour spokesperson for City Management
