We kindly ask that all tenants use heavy duty black bags for refuse, this will help reduce smell (all bin stores are experiencing this particularly in the recent hot weather), bags splitting open etc.
We notice lots of small plastic bags are being used to dispose of refuse on sites. Using proper refuse bags will help reduce smell in communal areas that are close to bin stores as well as help reduce flies and vermin.
These can be obtained from all supermarkets or online from Amazon:
Tower Hamlets will be collecting real Christmas trees for recycling between 6th and 20th January. This will be at Plymouth Wharf on Wednesday 11th and 18th January.
If you wish your tree to be collected please leave outside the front of your property (houses), or by recycle bin areas (flats) before these dates.
Anything left after these dates will not be collected and we remind residents that PWRA is not responsible for removal of such items so residents will need to make their own arrangements for disposal.
More details can be found on the Tower Hamlets website.
We’ve had a number of complaints and issues recently about use of recycling bins around the development so here’s a gentle reminder.
Recycling is collected every Wednesday and needs to be put into pink bags. Please don’t use other bags or leave rubbish loose as the council will often refuse to take it.
Bins are located at both ends of the development by each block. If the nearest bin is full please use another bin or walk to one of the other recycling areas rather than stuffing more in and leaving the top of the bin open. Doing so just encourages rats and foxes.
More information about what can be recycled and where you can obtain pink bags on the Tower Hamlets website.
If you have larger items to recycle you can contact the council to arrange collection or make use of the Tower Hamlets recycling centre on Yabsley Street at the top of the Isle-of-Dogs.
Please be aware that the Yabsley recycling centre now insist on proof of ID and residency in Tower Hamlets before they will accept any rubbish. Drivers license or other recognised official photo ID and a corresponding utility bill will suffice.
