Haringey Borough Council responds to Miltons Residents Association concerns
Haringey Borough Council has said it tries to keep all its roads clean and tidy after residents in the west of the borough complained that their bins were overflowing.
Earlier this week, members of the Miltons Residents Association claimed the fortnightly bin collection in the west of the borough means streets are left "filthy and unsightly".
According to residents, the situation in Milton Road and Milton Avenue is made worse as houses do not have an area in front of them to store bins so excess rubbish has to be left on the pavement.
A spokesman from the council said the council carries out twice weekly street cleansing and makes regular checks for dumped items.
She said: “We have been in regular contact with residents in the Miltons to try to address any concerns they may have.
“In order to ensure that the road is kept clean and tidy, we carry out twice weekly street cleansing and make regular checks for dumped items.
“Where necessary, we are adjusting bin provision to ensure adequate capacity and prevent bins from overflowing.
“All recyclable waste – including dry waste and food – is still collected weekly and across the borough, recycling rates have risen significantly as a result of changes and improvements to collections.”
