Littered street corner, attracting flies

Reported via mobile in the Overflowing Public Bin category anonymously at 08:38, Mon 23 May 2022

Sent to Hackney Council 2 days, 3 hours, 38 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 3543780.

Hi team, there isn’t a bin next to the residential properties at the Boundary Street / Old Nichol Street junction and hence, most households place their rubbish bags near the tree in the picture.

  • [...continued from original report description...] While the bags get collected, any overflowing rubbish especially those deposited by passerby visitors over the weekend, do not. In this particular instance, overflowing rubbish has remained under the tree for over a week now and is attracting flies, pests and a foul smell - so much so we’re unable to open the windows facing Boundary Street as flies tend to come into houses. Please could you help?

  • Morning team, thank you for looking into the problem. This is quite persistent (latest photo from today) and the residents of 13 Boundary Street are having to clean up the surroundings on a daily basis as the streets are still not being cleaned - this is frankly now becoming a health issue. Is there a way a rubbish bin can be placed on this side of the street so the tree doesn’t become a litter box?
