19 May - Recycling Guide and other news - click any image for document gallery (2 images)

Recycling Guide 2009/10I didn’t get a copy of the recycling guide this year, the one that includes a calendar of the scheduled fortnightly collection dates. A copy kept near the front door is a useful reassurance when a neighbour puts out their bins on what I think may be the wrong day. So I emailed the appropriate department via the link on the council website and was told within hours that the 2010/2011 issue had been popped in the post for me. As I have said before; why can’t all of Bexley council be as helpful as the recycling people?

Something else that happened today is that another bus shelter was moved in Abbey Road after council works left it marooned in the middle of the pavement. Actually it’s a completely new and bigger shelter. Maybe Bexley council should move the lamp posts which have been left in the middle of the pavement too. Perhaps they will do it when they get around to wiring up the keep left bollard which remains a hazard to night time traffic nine months or more after it was moved as part of the wrecking of Abbey Road.

Finally I see that today’s News Shopper says that Bexley council, having taken over some aspects of parking control from Vinci Parking Services, is no longer bothering to remind residents when their yearly parking permits expire so that more penalty notices can be issued. I suspect another crafty little scam by Craske.
