Lambeth is working on a plan to deal with our rubbish for the next 10 years. It’s about how to reduce, re-use and recycle more waste, tackle litter and fly-tipping. Dealing with waste in Lambeth costs £25m per year so it is a significant part of the council’s budget which is vital to maintaining a good and clean environment.
To have your say please look at the draft Waste Strategy and complete the survey on the website below before Monday 10th June.

Mike Smith & Lorna Campbell checking for flytips
Many residents in the area are concerned about Fly-tipping, particularly the illegal dumping of commercial waste on local housing estates. This issue is frequently raised at resident meetings and despite efforts to identify those responsible, it is a persistent problem.
Last week local councillors arranged for Cllr Lorna Campbell, Cabinet Member responsible for environmental issues, to visit various fly-tipping ‘hot spots’ around the West Norwood. The council is trying to sort out this problem and to identify those responsible.
Local people also have a vital role to play in efforts to tackle illegal dumping of rubbish by reporting environmental crime. If you witness fly-tipping or other environmental crime, please report it to the council either online or by phone. Details of how to report are available here – http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/Services/Environment/EnvironmentalCrime/Fly-tipping.htm
