For the last couple of years, Costa Coffee in North Finchley have been dumping their rubbish in and beside the BT phone boxes directly outside their shop. On some days, one of the phone boxes is stuffed FULL of refuse bags! These phone boxes are largely redundant in their primary purpose, one of the boxes has been missing a DOOR for at least 2 years, the boxes are covered in graffiti/tags and spit and the floors are stained from the rubbish. One of the handsets looks like it is covered in some sort of fluid - it is not sanitised, it is disgusting and given the current Covid situation, it is probably best avoided! The boxes remain there because BT use them for advertising which is on the road-side of the boxes. The BT logo peeling off of the top of one of the boxes was last used in 2003 - 18 years ago!

I have contacted BT, Costa Coffee UK and Barnet Council via Twitter and none of them have done anything, in fact Barnet Council and Costa completely ignored me. The litter from Costa Coffee should be placed at the rear in a bin store safe from rats, but it appears that flats were built where the bin store should have been! Barnet Council Planning would have been responsible for the approval of the planning application! The rubbish is put into Barnet Council supplied bags!

Enough is enough, these phone boxes must be removed, the rubbish must instead be moved to the back to a bin store and protected from rats. We don't want a replacement phone box with an advertising panel (these are being installed locally and are also used for rubbish bags), we want fewer pedestrian obstructions, no rubbish bags on the High Street. Keep the pavements clear, remove the boxes and the rubbish now!
