Lobbying for a clean town centre

Waste and Street Cleansing

Love Wimbledon has been working hard to lobby the council’s new contractor for waste and street cleansing (Veolia) to maintain the town centre to a high standard. Since April standards have slipped, but we are regularly reporting issues to Merton Council and Veolia to keep Wimbledon clean and tidy.

Since the street cleansing service and waste service was outsourced, it has become apparent that the standard of cleanliness in the town has been declining. We have been communicating this to Senior representatives at Merton Council and we have had many meetings and assurances that the teething problems will be resolved. Our Chief Executive, Helen Clark Bell was invited to speak at the Sustainable Communities Scrutiny Panel to represent the issues the town and its businesses have been experiencing. Love Wimbledon is here to lobby for you and will persist to ensure the town centre has a high standard to cleansing, litter bin emptying, graffiti removal and reliable commercial collections for Merton Council/Veolia customers.
