Roadworks in Hampstead led to a build-up of rubbish on the street… why?

09 August, 2018

• HAMPSTEAD residents will be keenly aware of the roadworks on Rosslyn Hill – and a by-product has been business waste placed on the pavement has been left uncollected because the collection vans can’t get to them.

Rosslyn Hill became dotted with rubbish bags, boxes, and loose waste. An enormous mound grew up outside Lloyd’s Bank. It was putrid and gross, and no one was doing anything about it. I reported it on the Clean Camden App, and raised the issue with the cabinet member for the environment.

In less than an hour, Cllr Adam Harrison had got back to me promising to look into the problem and the next day Veolia assured me they had a plan in place to deal with the issue for the remainder of the works. But I wondered why on earth someone hadn’t thought of it before work began.
