Overflowing Recycing Bins at Kingsway Road Car Park

by Mary Burstow on 31 December, 2013

A constituent reported to me the dreadful state of the recycling bins at the Kingsway Road Car Park.  To be honest it looks rather more like lots of Flytipping than just over enthusiastic Christmas recycling. I have reported the state of the bins to the Council, so hopefully it will get cleared up quickly, before […]

by Mary Burstow on 20 October, 2012

On Wednesday evening, Flytippers struck again.  This time they dumped a load of rubble in the Cheam Gate Car Park of Nonsuch.  In order to get rid of it, Epsom Council will need to hire a lorry with a grab.  More cost to the Tax Payer!  By the time I had returned to the park […]
