More refinement of the re-cycling system

This week we will all be getting more plastic sacks – white this time for our plastics to stop them blowing around. Hopefully this will make the recycling system even more efficient and help keep our streets tidier.

Ealing’s residents are working really hard at their recycling – they recycled 45 per cent more of their waste in May, compared to the same time last year. In total more than 4,000 tonnes was recycled, composted or turned into organic fertiliser and electricity in May.

Apparently you should get a sack this week in time for next weeks’ collection. If you don’t call the council’s help desk on 020 8825 6000. This number is also the main number you dial for any street related issue. It really does work so if there is any kind of problem in your street please phone it in. We can’t fix problems if no-one tells us they exist. I typically phone this number 2 or 3 times a week. It is sometimes a little irritating to have to spell out the name of your road to an operator that doesn’t know your end of the borough but it really is worth the effort.

– consistently increasing the performance of our social services
– mending more on roads and pavements in three years than Labour managed in 12
– fixing Labour’s street lighting PFI so that we at least please some of the people some of the time
– driving hard to get council estates, town centres, libraries and swimming pools regnerated.

There are a lot more main acheivements than waste collection and re-cycling but sure that one is probably the most visible. Oh yeah, and sorting out grafitti and …
