Leabank Square Re-Cycle Centre
For the past few weeks - some residents (& our friends the fly-tippers) have been dumping household junk around the Leabank Square Re-Cycle Centre.
This has led to it being overrun with rats & assorted other vermin. And it has been such a horrible sight for everyone to see.
The Hackney Council Re-Cycle truck then refused to return the bins back to their rightful place - and when I spoke to them last week - they said that they wouldn't until it was all cleared up.
I cleared & swept up today - and it looks a whole heap better - so hopefully we will have a regular service from now on.
But please could we all put any re-cycling actually inside the bins from now on. All the aluminium take-out boxes & cans were still caked in food (hence the vermin) - and there was loads of stuff that are not actually re-cyclable.
And then - of course there was all the fly-tipped stuff as well. For that we just have to be a bit more vigilant. If you ever see any of these vans dumping stuff anywhere in our square - see if you can snap a pic. If we put evidence up here on the blog - maybe a bit of naming & shaming might do the trick.
