Residents are encouraged to get involved in shaping a new proposal for rubbish, recycling, and street cleansing services ahead of the current contract with Veolia ending in 2025.
Today (13 January) the council launched a six-week consultation to give people the chance to give their views on the current service and what Croydon should prioritise in a new contract. This feedback will be used to help design a proposal for what services the council will be looking for from potential bidders.
The current service includes recycling, general rubbish collection, garden waste, food waste, bulky waste collections, street cleansing and fly-tip removal.
An online survey can be accessed via the council website, and printed copies and a large font version are available by request by calling the council at 020 8726 6000, 9am- 4pm Monday – Friday.
“Listening to residents, and cleaner streets are top priorities for me as Executive Mayor. I know how important street cleaning and waste collection are to residents and businesses, and I want them to be involved in shaping these essential services for the future. Your feedback on the current services will inform our priorities for the new contract, so that together we develop a good quality, reliable service that really works for people in Croydon. I’d encourage everyone to have their say before 25 February.”
Jason Perry, Executive Mayor of Croydon
