New lamppost-mounted bins are being introduced across H&F in the latest drive to keep streets clean and tidy.
The new, raised bins have already been installed on 15 side streets to provide an easier way to dispose of litter and dog waste. Ten more will be installed soon.
“To make our streets even cleaner, we’re making it as easy as possible for residents and visitors to responsibly throw their rubbish away,” said Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport and Residents’ Services.
Hammersmith & Fulham Council has been working closely with its waste contractors, Serco, to identify areas where litter and dog fouling can be a problem.
The bins are located in areas that will make it easy for residents walking past to dispose of small items of litter, such as food wrappers or coffee cups, and also for dog walkers to drop off their pets’ waste.
The new bins have already been installed in:
- Fulham - Shorrolds Road, Fabian Road, St Thomas Way, Ongar Road, Hartismere Road
- Parsons Green - Elthiron Road
- Sands End - De Morgan Road, Kilkie Street, Snowbury Road, Hugon Road, Dymock Street
- West Kensington - Palliser Road, Barton Road, Star Road, Challoner Street
Cleanest ever streets
Last year, independent surveys found H&F’s streets were the cleanest they had ever been. But the council is keen to work with residents to get them spotless.
The council’s Street Czar, who was appointed to work closely with residents on any street mess issues, has already achieved local successes.
