After much community, resident and Council work it is great to see these new additions at the bottom on Ullswater Road, just off from Norwood Road. 

Flytipping is an issue we take seriously and have been working hard with those in the local community to try and find ways to deal with the issue and where rubbish is dumped have it cleared quickly. 

Lambeth Council has for some time been running various campaigns to challenge flytipping including the recent ‘Not on Our Streets’ work and the development of ‘Street Champions’ – http://love.lambeth.gov.uk/do-the-right-thing/

As many of you may have know Lambeth’s core government funding will have been cut by 56% between 2010 and 2018 and since 2011, the Council has identified £182m of savings – including more than £40m this year – while a further £55m needs to be found by 2020.
