Those of you who are understandably affronted by the sight of domestic wheelie bins at the lower end of Dartmouth Road may be somewhat comforted to know that the residential waste from the flats concerned has now been folded into Lewisham's scheme to keep shopping areas clean. We can now put our rubbish out in standard issue orange bags for half an hour in the morning and half an hour on certain nights, whereupon it will be picked up by the commercial waste collectors. And the bins have disappeared. Good news all round, I think.

I am a resident of dartmouth road and had those bags delivered. I am at the top end though. Does this arrangement extend up dartmouth Road? (as far as the pools for example?)

I live in a flat above the parade of shops by Boots and have not received any orange bags, all the wheelie bins have been removed. I have rung the council twice now: the first time the young lady I spoke to didn't know about the bins, couldn't find any information about it, but said we might be in the 'orange bag scheme' and someone would call me back to confirm. (They haven't and its been a week). So, I called the enviro team again today and the guy told me he hadn't heard anything about the 'orange bag scheme' in the area and told me he was going to order me a new wheelie bin (would take up to 3 MONTHS!!!) and that it was probably taken away because it was damaged. I told him that I doubt it as approx 8 had been removed and explained what I had seen written on here about the orange bag scheme and he still insisted he knew nothing of it. The mind boggles. I have sent an email too now and hope that someone who has any idea of whats going on will get back to me.

Thanks, looks like my email to the council worked as someone dropped a few rolls of orange bags through my letter box.
