They can’t both be right


Above is a map showing the location of all the Greenwich council-owned gritting bins. It’s a great idea, built and conceived by Greenwich.co.uk and Jo Brodie. The interesting thing is the lack of bins on the Lewisham side…

Why? Because…

“The Council has been advised against providing salt/grit bins. Our experience has been that bins are frequently vandalised and the salt and grit thrown into neighbouring gardens.” Lewisham Council’s website.

Clearly they haven’t been advised by Greenwich Council, who seem to think that gritting bins are a great idea. Maybe when you step across the Great Wall of Blackheath, the locals are suddenly unable to resist flinging handfuls of gravel into gardens!
