Comment on this story on the

The newly appointed Ealing Council Director responsible for the rubbish service in the borough has accepted an invitation by Northfield Councillors for a walkabout to see the problems.

Local representatives, Conservative Councillors, Millican, Mullins and Conti have detailed some of the issues and are inviting locals to contact them with specific problems before 17th October when the walkabout is due to take place.

In their InTouch newsletter they say:

Flytipping doubled 

Since the introduction of the new wheelie bins in June

  • ·      Ealing Council officers have confirmed that the incidents of flytipping has more than doubled
  • ·      Reports of missed collections of the blue and back bins is more than twice what officers said they anticipated
  • ·      The Council now only contracts for the residential roads to be swept every three weeks instead of weekly
  • ·      However the good news is that recycling has increased

Whilst some people are happy with the introduction of the new wheelie bins many are not. As Northfield Councillors we opposed their introduction but are now working hard with officers to try and ensure that the service finally works for residents.

If there are issues you would like us to raise with the new director or would like to meet her, please let us know.
