    One thing I’ve noticed around the area with the “bags out early” problem:

    Some roads, such as Lansbury Avenue, have prominent signs clearly indicating the normal collection day for waste (and recycling), so residents really have no excuse for putting it out early, or late.

    Many, or perhaps most, other roads, however, including Carlton Avenue, have no such signs. I appreciate the cost implications, but might it not be helpful to have signs posted on lamp-posts as a matter of course- perhaps they could be placed their by street-sweepers, especially if they are of the adhesive type. while doing their rounds, which would scarcely add much time to their duties?

    Of course, established residents of a road soon know their collection day, but with so many rental properties and short-term tenants in the area now, it can’t be taken for granted that ‘newcomers’ will pick up on such information, particularly in our sadly less ‘neighbourly’ society. Failing that, could the council not make better use of Hounslow Matters, or signage at council-owned property such as schools, to advise the collection day? It is after all the same day for most of, for instance, Feltham now.

    Also, the distribution of the recycling and collection calendars does seem to be very patchy. The new calendar comes into effect next Thursday- but we haven’t received ours yet. Although I’m aware these are available from the re-cycling website, surely residents should not need to print them out when somebody is being paid to print and distribute them?

    Ensuring these calendars are distributed, and perhaps more signs, would be one way of lessening the bags out early problem wouldn’t it, Mark, unless you have any other suggestions? I’m just anticipating all the bags that will be festering in the evening heat (dream on!) for 24 hours between Wednesday night and Friday morning in Easter week, because so many people forget the ‘day later’ rubric in Bank Holiday weeks,

    The amount of signs put out like the one in Lansbury should have been made permanet in the first place !!! ( if your going to do a job properly do it properly the first time round ) and then enforce the threat of a fine , as per the sign !!! otherwise don’t bother with the sign in the first place !!!! also as residents we know that by recycling we are trying to keep our Council tax down ( land fil tax ) but these landlords tenants aren’t bothered so why not give the Landlords a higher
