This week the local Conservatives launched up our Clean Up Ealing campaign. This picture shows one green bag left by the street cleaners overnight in Mattock Lane, Ealing. By this morning a flytipper had added another bag (slightly different green and not stencilled like the council bags). The flytipped bag contained foodwaste so the foxes have pulled both bags apart looking for food.
In our short time in power we thought that we had licked street cleaning so we are really sorry that since 1st April residents have had to put up with such a poor service from Enterprise, the councilâ€™s new contractor, and that our borough has looked so awful. We feel that the Labour administration has played down the scale of the service failure that residents have had to put up with and has been slow to hold the contractor to account.
It looks like residents wonâ€™t be getting a proper service across the borough until well into August. By keeping this issue at the top of the political agenda we hope that the council will work harder to put things right and think about how residents can be compensated for five months of poor service.
To help with our campaign take a picture of any problems that you come across and either tweet pictures using the hash tag #CleanUpEaling or email us at and we will put up your pictures and stories on our website and on twitter. To see what is going on click here.
