Ealing and Northfield

Missed collections still running three times ahead of last year

Figures released on Thursday night (question 30) show that missed collections across the borough are still running three times ahead of last year. (The official answer to my question is slightly garbled – the chart puts the right data in the right place). My own ward in particular suffered from repeated missed collections in November.

In October missed collections were only twice as bad as the previous year. They went backwards in November. At least some of the problem has been vehicle breakdowns, certainly in Northfield ward.

Eight months into the new Enterprise contract Ealing council has still not managed to give residents the service that they pay for.
