Tower Hamlets Refuse Collection:
- had NOT been advised by EastendHomes of the change to the refuse collection arrangements.
- were UNAWARE OF THE REFUSE PROBLEM at Ennerdale House caused by the change in refuse collection arrangements by Telford Homes.
“we need to look at creating a new temporary refuse storage area since we don’t want to confuse residents with thinking purple bins are for refuse” say the Council. Read the latest rubbish news on the MERA blog here and more pictures on Flickr
The situation on Friday 12th November outside Ennerdale House (remember just prior to the week end). The 3 recycling bins are being used for general and large rubbish since the landlord (EastendHomes) have closed off access for residents to the big skip in Ennerdale House, and without providing an alternative. On Friday the overspill was excessive and flies all over the place in the wind; stuff lands in trees and even in the building site on the opposite side of the road.

Mile End Estate Management Board tell us refuse arrangements will be permanent – no access to skip – after all these years now considered a health & safety risk!
The closure will be permanent, we were told at the Mile End Estate Management Board meeting on Thursday evening when we brought up the issue of residents now not having anywhere to put bulk rubbish. (It’s the board set up by EastendHomes consisting of residents on the EastendHomes estates here at Mile End).
EastendHomes did not inform residents of what best to do in this situation until 5 days later and with a rather useless piece of advice to divide your rubbish into smaller portions which can fit down the rubbish chutes on the stairs.
We recommend that if you have big rubbish to put it in the big bin at Derwent House, opposite the entrance to Ennerdale. This will get filled up pretty quickly but we hope that way EastendHomes will provide some sort of extra skip for us in Ennerdale.
Please don’t put general rubbish in the recycling bins – they are still strictly for recyclables only and now placed by the exit to Hamlets Way – although we don’t blame anyone for having used them in the last week as they were the nearest skips and no advice or information had been given by our landlord.
General rules for recycling are:
- Only use the pink sacks
- Any plastic bottles can go in (shampoo, household cleaning, water bottles, milk plastic bottles) – but no cellophane used for food wrapping.
- Newspapers, pizza leaflets!
