In order to use the service, remove all decorations from your tree first and place it out with existing food and garden waste on Wednesday 6th January or Wednesday 13th January.
In order to avoid trees blowing around the development in the event of high winds, thoses in houses should leave trees securely up against their fence at the end of their drives.
Residents in the flats should place their trees in the Block 4 recycling bin area (this is the area opposite the Block 4 stairwell between properties 53 & 54. Please take care not to block access to the bins for residents in that Block. We will then arrange with collection team to take all the trees in this area.
We kindly ask that residents who do not make use of this service to not simply dump trees in bin cupboards or elsewhere on the development as they will not be collected. If necessary, CCTV will be used to enforce and dumping of rubbish and offenders will be charged for removal.
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:
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.
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.
