Bulky Waste and fly tipping Update from Councillor Glanville‏

images

Dear Tenants and Residents,

You may have noticed that we have been making improvements to the way fly-tipping is tackled on estates as we try to beat dumping in communal areas and improve the look and feel of where you live.

Bulky waste that has been discarded on estates – such as furniture and old electrical items – will now be logged and monitored in more detail to try to identify offenders and take action against them.

Inspections and collections have now begun to take place at weekends and there is also an increased weekday service. This is in order to target the days when offenders are most active. At the same time, larger vehicles and smarter ways of working means clearance and removal is getting quicker and better.

The changes are part of the Council’s aim to create a cleaner, more pleasant outdoor environment on blocks and estates through integrating the external cleaning service, which is responsible for communal outdoor areas, with the borough’s well-regarded street cleaning service.

As part of this new integrated service, which will be introduced gradually over the coming months, weeds on estates have also been targeted and treated, and once they have died off, they will be removed by cleaners.

Bulky waste, which you can arrange for us remove for you for free, has been a problem on estates for years and we’re determined to crack it and target those few who are making communal areas unpleasant for everyone else.

This improved removal service forms part of a programme of change to bring our housing environment up to the same standard as street cleanliness, and ensure our estates and blocks are cleaner, greener, safer and more attractive for everyone who lives, works and visits them.

To book a bulky waste collection, go online: www.hackney.gov.uk/bulkywaste

or call: 020 8356 6688. We will usually collect it within 48 hours.

Cllr Philip Glanville,

Cabinet Member for Housing

ONE YOU – Helping Hackney get healthy

Clj6vABWYAAnTVW

Hackney Council’s new health initiative of £1 fitness classes and other free activities, will encourage residents to take control of their health for benefits now and in later life.

This is a great opportunity for residents to get active and get healthy so get involved in ONE YOU Hackney today.

ONE YOU Hackney will help residents – from seven to over 70 – to move more, eat well, drink less and lead healthier lifestyles. Across the borough there are estate-based fitness classes for only £1, free fitness classes in parks and free healthy cooking and eating courses.

By taking an online health quiz called ‘How Are You’. This provides personal recommendations based on individual results. It directs people to tools and advice to help them take action where it’s most needed and it also provides a link to the Council’s Public Health webpage which lists fitness class and healthy cooking dates, times and locations as well as other healthy living support, advice and information.
