Yep. It grew overnight.
Just getting anyone interested enough is a real battle.
Community CCTV camera clearly required.
Wonder if one of the neighbours opposite would be willing to pop a small camera in a window for a day or two. Shouldn’t take longer that that to catch the first one.
So. As I was walking past at 06.43 this morning I saw a guy in a high vis vest who also had a cart/sweeping brush move several old framed pictures from in front of the house next to the nursery at the junction of Sunderland Road and South Circular to the offending area by the bin. I couldn’t take a photo of him as my bus was coming so I had to leg it. But it looks like he works for the council. So perhaps this explains the smaller items being placed there to be collected later by the council. However this doesn’t explain the larger items that get out there from time to time.
Also doesn’t explain why the council have no comment on the matter. Unless it is something informally arranged by the guys in the dept and on the road for ease of use.
That said I can’t believe for a minute that some of the stuff is their doing.
Great spot by the way @Bolgerp useful info
How about a little guerilla gardening? Perhaps if that spot was full of flowers people would be less inclined to dump their crap on it?
Nice idea, would certainly pretty the place up a bit.
It probably wouldn’t last 5 minutes, unfortunately…
Dump d dump dump.
This is one of my favourite threads on this site. It always cheers me up while I’m sat at my desk not working. Keep up with the reporting!
(I obviously would feel differently if I had to witness the litter on a daily basis, but luckily for me I don’t.)
Happily I saw 2 guys earlier clearing the contents from a house on Sunderland… Straight into a skip! Well done guys.
On the subject of skips. We have had one for a few weeks, covered and with lamps on it. Had to stop a number of people trying to put stuff in it. “Well, it’s nearly empty so I thought it would be OK”. “So how did you know it was nearly empty when there is a cover on it”? “Ah, well…errr. I just…eeer thought that it would be OK”. “Can I have your address please so that I can pop over and drop a few items off in your garden when we next have a clear out”. Look of shame on their faces.
People are idiots.
Annoying isn’t it. Anyone’s skip is fair game. Worst part is, if you then throw their stuff out, YOU are dumping stuff!
Hippo bag all the way for me these days. Can put it out when I start using it, fold it closed if not filled in the day and so much cheaper lol
For the entertainment of others. Appeared a few days ago with mattress. Today mattress is gone.
And still no word from Lewisham to say if this is an unofficial agreed pick up point
Given that Perry Vale Councillor John Paschoud has previously recognized this as a problem area, I’m assuming this isn’t. @John_Paschoud… could you in your position as one of our Councillors ask about this?
If Lewisham did say it was an unofficial pick-up point, would it still be unofficial?
As I was driving past yesterday there was a truck with Lewisham logos being loaded with the junk which had been left on the corner. So whether it’s official or not, they’re definitely clearing things from there.
Lol good point, but yet. So ner.
I just mean is it somewhere there are aware of, but do not promote.
@Dave seems to happen quite regularly, so it is certainly somewhere they are aware of.
I and a few others diligently report each incident on FixMyStreet or by Twitter to Lewisham Environmental Services.
Good man! I do the same round my area.
