Thurrock Residents Your Refuse Collection is Rubbish

This petition made change with 346 supporters!

Dear Resident

Do you think the following matters are acceptable?

•The refuse collection service is in crisis and whilst you are told to separate your waste for recycling, some of the crews are ordered to mix it all together and recycling has been dumped as general rubbish, meaning the cost of disposal has more than doubled

• On May 8th 2017 Thurrock Council introduced a blitz style sweeper and refuse system in some areas where all the vehicles arrive at once. This creates noise pollution for residents and workers as well as major access problems for road users

• Your bin lorries are being fitted with 'big brother' cameras, with a live feed to managers' desks so that they can spy on refuse collectors and residents at all times.  If you use a search engine on the internet and enter "spy cameras on bin lorries" you will find out that the 360⁰ vision means that your images, your house, your car, your garden, your recycling and your bins can all be viewed by the Council ‘live’ too. The images can be used as evidence for refuse collections and check what residents are putting in their bins

• Refuse collection management have consistently abused their position to illegally monitor workers and to victimise them including telling them they were in trouble with the police.


If you think any or all of these issues are wrong please sign the petition
