Sally Knocker started this petition to Veolia UK and

Almost every day, people living in Colliers Wood and other parts of Merton come out of their houses to find quantities of rubbish in their streets. This includes fast food packaging, beers, cans etc but also much larger fly tipping items - furniture, tyres, bedding etc. 

This is partly caused by lazy and thoughtless people not taking their own rubbish home, but it’s also because bins aren’t emptied regularly and there is little or no enforcement from Merton Council.

Litter breeds litter. It looks filthy and affects everyone’s mental health. If you look at Colliers Wood News and Views FB page, you will see how many are upset and angry about this. 

We need Merton Council and its contractors who are paid millions to take urgent action to address this major and ever worsening issue. 

More CCTV cameras 

More enforcement officers

More regular emptying of rubbish bins especially near known ‘hot spots’ like Dean City Farm

Fast food outlets to do more to provide places for rubbish 

Increase local litter picking volunteer days

Please help us get these messages through to the Council, their Contractors and the wider public living in our area!

Together we are stronger!
