Dear resident or business,

You may well be aware by now of the community engagement and design workshops that are already underway with the purpose of involving people in designing improvements to Rosendale Road as part of the proposed cycle Quietway.

We feel that at this stage it is important for us to make clear that Lambeth is no longer proposing any road closures as part of the project.
Your input is valuable and we want as my people as possible to be involved in helping to design alternative improvements.

We hope to see you at the next co-design workshop to be held this  Saturday 24th October 10:30 to 14:30pm.

Both events will be held at All Saints Church, Lovelace Road, SE21 8JY.

Dr. Peter Loveday
Transport Manager
Communities, Housing and Environment
London Borough of Lambeth

Tackling the illegal use of Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre

June 4, 2013

Lambeth Reuse and Recycling CentreWe have recently had success in tackling the ongoing problem of commercial waste dumping at Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre.

Lambeth Reuse and Recycling Centre is a domestic recycling and reuse facility, for residents within the borough, funded through Council Tax. However, it is regularly being used by businesses to dispose of their commercial waste, increasing costs for all residents.

All businesses have a duty of care under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to store, transport and safely dispose of the waste that they generate. Businesses disposing of waste must have a waste carriers licence and be able to present it when required. This duty of care is one the most important ways to tackle flytipping. Businesses must also pay the cost of disposing of their waste.

In an effort to tackle this problem a recent operation by Lambeth produced positive results. Two fixed penalty notices for £300 each were issued on the spot to businesses bringing waste into the site, for failure to produce a waste carriers licence contrary to the Control of Pollution Act 1974.

Officers regularly monitor the site and will continue to take robust enforcement action to prevent businesses from across London avoiding their responsibilities and ripping off our residents.
