Oh, I think it goes beautifully with the smashed door and newspapered windows just nearby, no?

Suspect someone's been told to clear their stuff out of a rented flat above or lose their deposit. Maybe.

FH is still relatively cheap by London standards so plenty of DSS type lettings. Transient people with more fundamental things to worry about than the gentrification of the local area. (Generalisation I know)

We have one on our road, constant change of tenants, means a constant pile of c**p and new flat-pack packaging by the bins. The housing is probably temporary for them and they have no transport so they can't go to the tip, and have no incentive to research council collection services.

Not sure what can be done about it really other than for those of us who do live here longer term to report it to the waste collection people.

On monday morning there was a rough sleeper in the doorway of the pizza shop next to the Red Cross shop on london road.
He was lying on a sheet of cardboard wrapped in a duvet.

I reported the fly tipping via the LoveLewisham app. Worth getting for ios and Android phones.

LoveLewisham app doesn't work on iOS8 and the developers are no longer supporting it.

Anyway, as it turns out, there is a completely new app by a new developer. Works fine on my iPhone. I had the original app from several years ago, didn't know that Lewisham had abandoned that one. So no need to sully myself using an inferior OS.

There is usually a pile like that at the entrance to Sainsburys car park. Don't know what is wrong with these people.

Well the council doesn't really offer sufficient hard waste collection anymore. I think you have to pay for it and the times they give you are probably rubbish, no pun intended.
Just checked it's £15 for 3 items. So based on that pile, that's probably £60+.


That's not very convenient for people who are short on money. And most people don't have a vehicle to deliver to the tip.


Its way easier for the council to let people fly tip (they are actively encouraging it with those prices), then let the residents put up with it, complain, then pick it up 2 weeks later once they can be bothered. That's cheaper than offering a proper service to every household.

Speaking of classy, how about the lovely graffito on the slate slabs telling the history of FH. Could someone with the Love Lewisham app report that one as well?

The good old fashioned tip is a lot fussier than it used to be...

You don't have to use an app. Try here:

The offending item has been removed - unfortunately, none too gently. I fear the slates will not be the same again.

Indeed, the "good old fashioned tip" is nothing of the sort - it is a newfangled recycling centre and as such only seems to accept things that you could put in your green bin anyway (unless too big). Oh, and garden waste and electricals.

Plus it closes at 12pm on Saturdays, is almost 30 mins away after queuing through New Cross at the weekends, plus another 5-10 minutes queuing outside during the summer, and you need to bring ID....

If only it were a good old-fashioned tip. No wonder we have a fly-tipping problem.
