Harrow Weald Councillors have received a lot of complaints from irate residents regarding the lack of general maintenance, litter and fly-tipping across the ward. Despite a 2% increase in Council Tax, introduction of the £75 Brown Bin Tax and further Council Tax hikes planned for 2017, the Labour run Harrow Council continues to cut back on environmental and street cleaning services. This is not just an issue within Harrow Weald but throughout the Borough.
Meanwhile, the brown bin system is in chaos, with collections frequently being missed and long queues to get to the rubbish tip. Having introduced this scheme, against strong opposition from local residents and councillors, Labour failed to think through the consequences. This situation is unacceptable and we will continue to do everything possible to fight for improvements.
