Refuse Collections - still two a week for awhile
The reports in the local papers this week that refuse collections in Camden are already being cut from twice to once a week are premature. Although the change has been approved in response to increased recycling levels and cost savings, it has been confirmed by Council officers that much planning has to be done before such a change can take place and is not likely to happen before June 2011 at the earliest. And in any case, the change won't be applied to large blocks of flats and other dwellings where twice weekly collections will still be necessary. We'll keep you posted on developments.
