The new Labour administration in Westminster has reversed cuts by the previous Conservative administration to household rubbish collection services.
Paul Dimoldenberg, Cabinet Member for City Management and Air Quality, said
“The new Labour administration keeps its promises. Our priority is to keep Westmister streets clean. All residents who have been affected by the previous rubbish collection cuts will now be able to keep their second general waste collection. Meanwhile, we’re rolling out food waste recycling across the city to boost recycling rates.”
In Queen’s Park ward, where residents saw their general waste collections cut to once per week under the previous Conservative administration, the new Labour-run Council has reinstated the second weekly household waste collection.
In Little Venice ward, food waste recycling will be added out without any other changes to collection services.
Households in Maida Vale, Westbourne, Church Street, Abbey Road, Regent’s Park, Harrow Road can arrange a second general waste collection by opting-in online or by calling the council on 020 7641 2000. Mansion block and housing estate residents do not need to opt-in.
