Tower Hamlets residents are being encouraged to talk rubbish, as the council runs a six week consultation on a new strategy to deal with waste.
Running from 14 February residents and businesses across the borough are being asked to give their views on the strategy, which aims to encourage more people to reduce, re-use and recycle their waste.
Six roadshow events will be taking place across the borough, giving residents the opportunity to look over the strategy and talk to the experts. Stalls will be manned between 10am and 3pm at these venues and dates:
Thursday 3 March at Whitechapel Idea Store, 321 Whitechapel Road, London E1 1BU
Monday 7 March at Canary Wharf Idea Store, Churchill Place London E14 5RB
Tuesday 8 March at Bethnal Green One Stop Shop 1Rushmead, Bethnal Green, London E2 6NE
Thursday 10 March Bow Idea Store, 1 Gladstone Place, Roman Road, Bow, London E3 5ES
Friday 11 March at ASDA, 151 East Ferry Road, London E14 3BT
Consultation leaflets and surveys will be sent to streets, randomly throughout the borough. Residents who want to get involved, but do not receive a survey through their letterbox can visit their local Idea Store for a copy.
Improving cleanliness is one of the Mayor’s priorities, and this consultation will help the council improve its refuse and recycling service. Download a summary of the draft waste strategy here (PDF) or do the online survey.
