Love Waste Hate Food

Lewisham council garden waste collection... Or not

UPDATE: Name removed because Mrs Bugle said the problem was not down to one individual.

I don’t want Lewisham council to teach people how to compost. I want them to teach themselves how to compost. I’ve left several branded lewisham bags of garden waste outside. I’ve requested them to be collected, and they haven’t been. I’ve tried to re-request it, and got the screenshot above.

Greenwich collects garden waste by default. Lewisham’s recycling is pretty pathetic by comparison.

From the council:

I am writing regarding free workshops by Lewisham Council that I’d like to put on your blog. One workshop theme is about Love Food Hate Waste and the other theme is on home composting.
I can provide flyers with all the necessary details to go on the blog, but with so many workshops available I’ve decided to list them below as well in case that’s easier to see in one hit. Could you let me know if it is possible for these to go on your blog as soon as you’re able, as many of the workshops are coming up soon?
Many thanks, ####

    I’ve always found Lewisham very efficient at collecting garden waste, provided it’s in the paid-for bags.
