riveting stuff - oh I do like to be beside the seaside, oh I do like to be.....etc. Cannot really see it catching on in Ilford - we could have the workmen knocking down the Pioneer Market, the workmen working extremely slowly on the tower blocks next to Spectrum Tower. The highlight would be an Ilford council worker actually picking up rubbish!

The poor old council litter pickers do pick up the rubbish, it's just that as soon as they do, twice as much is dropped in their wake by the filthy reprobates that inhabit/visit the place.

Ilford is a dirty great sh#thole, cos that's how the inhabitants like it, it reminds them of the filthy squalor they left behind. At least the asbo's working, no screaming hordes of kids in the town centre this summer.

Yes Topy I do agree that as soon as they pick it up some herbert comes and drops it again but I also see them in the morning when they are meant to pick it up. The little pavement sweeper shoots around far to fast to pick up the rubbish, its just knocked out of the way. It also does not go into all the corners. They should do what Westminster do which is one or two road sweepers working in tandem with the machine which goes much slower and this means that all the rubbish is picked up. I am sure they work really hard but something is not working properly - perhaps it is the people or lack of bins.

There are plenty of bins in the High Road, but some people are just too bl**dy lazy to use them.

I think the litter bin is an alien concept for the average Ilford inhabitant.

You're right there, Azza, there should be training courses on how to use them and what they are actually for.

Unfortunately, there are too many lazy, fat, drunken slobs who don't give a toss for anyone or anything other than their own gratification and treat this green and pleasant land as if it were a giant dustbin.

Then they complain how untidy it is. I get a lot of rubbish in my front garden as we are in chip shop range - so to speak. They troll down the road and pow when its done its lobbed in my garden. We are also on a corner where people stop in their cars to chomp their chinese, chips and other take aways. Really nice. All thrown in our garden along with empty bottles, syringes, cigarette packets, clothes (especially women's knickers for some reason recently), etc.
