Camden street cleansing
Camden Council plans to reduce the frequency of its street cleaning operations to help save £4.7m a year by 2013/14.
Camden residents have already seen their twice-weekly rubbish collections halved, bringing the borough into line with other areas in London.
The council admits that satisfaction may fall as a result of the changes to street cleansing, but says that this will be mitigated by increased enforcement activity with move to a “zero tolerance” approach to target hotspots and problem areas.
In addition to the reduced street cleaning, businesses will have to take more responsibility for keeping their areas clean and those that do not comply can expect enforcement action to be taken against them. The council is looking to improve its commercial waste service to increase sales.
