The role of EastendHomes
EastendHomes are responsible for making sure that, in relation to ALL estate properties, there are never any unsightly problems with overflowing rubbish bins on the Eric & Treby Estate and rubbish being left on the streets or pavements because:
- there are enough rubbish bins of an appropriate type
- the bins are situated in a place which means they do not spoil the appearance of people's homes (eg in a bin store)
- the frequency of collection is adequate for the avoidance of any unsightly mess
- tenants and leaseholders are educated as to what is recycling rubbish and what is normal rubbish and how/where to dispose of larger items
- they monitor the state of the bins and the streets and take appropriate action
The role of Tower Hamlets Council
This is how the reporting process works:
- ANYBODY can contact the Council however they choose to notify problem with non-collection of waste or the state of the streets due to overflowing waste bins and/or flytipping
- MERA reports all problems via FixMyStreet we find as this provides online documentation of the reported problem and whether/when it is fixed
- Tower Hamlets Council (LBTH) is notified by Fix My Street straight after being contacted by MERA.
- LBTH then contact Veolia - the waste management contractors whose job it is to get the rubbish cleared within the standards laid down by the contract.
- LBTH must meet standards for waste management - The Council is also responsible for ensuring that the contractor meets the contract standards.
