It is a pretty poor system overall, relying on timed collections which can vary and just means people feel they can put litter out most of the day as they know it will be collected - including passers by who just dump a carrier bag next to the bin (because putting it in is too much effort!) I wonder how many people have been prosecuted for not putting them out at the right time - how would they even find them!?
Added to that is the purple sacks by the rubbish men, which also end up being added. I am not saying those living on Green Lanes etc shouldn't put their rubbish out, but surely there is a better way? The black boxes that were trialed in Tottenham seem to work better in Wood Green High Street.
What do other places do? There never seems to be as many bags of rubbish collecting on the corners of other streets where there are residents above shop...maybe that is just me?
Those times must be impossible for those who work normal hours
Do those collections include Saturday and Sunday ?
