I bumped into two members of the Harlesden Town Team on Saturday, and mentioned a trip I made recently to Green Lanes in Haringey. Over there they have a time limited collection twice a day. In other words, you put waste out between 7.30am and 9pm or at a later slot in the evening.
The street seems much cleaner than Harlesden Town Centre, and I am wondering whether such a system could work over here.
I can see that it would need a lot of enforcement resource, and the waste people I spoke emphasissed the importance of community support and peer pressure. Haringey is also different in that they have a more homogenous community of mainly Turkish Cypriots in their area.
