Public Meeting on Flytipping

Good of Stephen Timms to be there, but this is really a council matter. Many people think the recently introduced £20 bulk waste collection charge has already made the problem worse.

Will any councillors turn up and talk to residents directly?

    The law has just changed: https://www.nqa.com/en-gb/resources/legal-updates/march-2016/flytipping. However, and this is one of Newham’s problems ‘productivity’, one has to catch them first.

    My own view is that a multi-layered approach, some carrot (back to free pick up), some education (about how much this ‘costs’, both monetary and associated), some actual analysis of hotspots, some actual work from ‘enforcement’ officers, pick-up and redistribution (I see furniture that is better than mine, a lot of the time!) and finally some visible ‘stick’ pour encourager les autres, as they say. However Newham is not really into thought out solutions, (misplaced) vanity is probably their main core skill. Shame.

    From what I remember going back years Newham Community Recycling kept Newham clean and tidy. No fly-tipping when them boys were around and a good recycling rate of all the furniture which helped the council. Whatever happened to them?, were they disbanded, bloody shame if they were!

    Would this be the same company who featured in this court case in 2013?

    WOMBLES COUPLE FLEECED COUNCIL OUT OF £700K IN RECYCLING SCAM
    NEWHAM, EAST LONDON; A married couple who worked for a recycling charity dubbed ‘The Wombles’ fleeced the taxpayer out of £700,000 by allowing a firm to dump thousands of tonnes of commercial waste, a court heard. Mark Hackett, 39, and wife Michelle, 42, worked for Newham Community Recycling set up to collect and recycle waste for the local council. The charity is nicknamed ‘The Wombles’ after the fictional pointy-nosed, furry creatures who live in a burrow in Wimbledon Common. But the Hacketts allegedly teamed up with Excel Skip Hire boss Nathan Gooden, 31, in a plot to defraud cash-strapped Newham Council out of a fortune, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard
