Huge volumes of litter; no street cleaner; rats now on the road.

Reported via desktop in the Littering category anonymously at 13:51, Thursday 16 November 2023

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5219843.

Serious litter issue at Kingsland High Street end of Walford Rd from people throwing kebab rubbish onto the street. No street cleaner has cleaned the road for 10 - 14 days - litter is now horrendous. I've seen 2 rats in the last couple of days.

  • Thank you. There is a real issue that for some reason the street cleaner has been removed from our road. We used to have one every day because of how much littler there is but now there hasn't been one for almost two weeks so the litter is completely out of control. This needs more than a one time fix - we need at least one street cleaner allocated to clean the street every day. Thank you.

  • Thank you very much for sorting that out so quickly, we really appreciate it.

    If you’re able to confirm that a street cleaner has now been allocated to clean Walford Road daily that would be great.
