Recycling bags left on street all week, week after week

Reported via mobile in the Overflowing bin category anonymously at 08:03, Sun 22 May 2022

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

11 Gould Terrace is a HMO packed with tenants so they generate loads of rubbish. All credit to them that they want to recycle too, but they don't keep their recycling within their property until Wednesday morning, which is our rubbish collection day. Instead, they leave a growing pile of full recycling bags and cardboard boxes on the street next to their big bin - which is in full view of the homes opposite. It is not only unsightly for neighbours living at street level, who must look directly at the rubbish from our living room windows, but it also gives the impression of an uncared for and neglected area that nobody cares about, which attracts people who come to urinate and take crack cocaine, etc compounding the problem further. In fairness, this property needs a large recycling bin, to go with their large refuse bin, but in the meantime would someone please remind the tenants in the 3 floors of this HMO that they must keep their recycling within the confines of their property until collection day. An issue is that due to the nature of this type of accommodation there is a high turnover of tenants, so they need some sort of leaflet to stick on their fridge, so that new tenants are aware not to leave recycling sitting on the street all week long week after week. Thanks.
