Teething Problems For Hounslow Council's New Refuse Service
Special weekend catch up for those whose rubbish was missed
Hounslow Council's new waste collection service which was transferred from contractor Suez to in-house Recycle 360, had some teething problems in its first week.
What the Council described as "a small backlog of missed collections from Thursday and Friday (3/4 November)" was due to the changeover to the new operator.
A Council spokesperson said Chiswick was affected on Wednesday but that all roads were cleared on Thursday.
A catch up collection were to be made on Saturday 5 November for anyone who was missed.
Recycle 360, the new operator is a trading arm of the wholly council-owned Lampton 360 and the council has brought the collection back in house. Residents whose collection has been missed are asked to leave their bin or recycling bags and boxes at the boundary of their property until Saturday evening.
Chiswick councillor John Todd has been critical of the way in which the new service has come about for reasons which he outlined recently in a blog on this website.
