Waltham Forest Council's latest rubbish policy takes effect

BUSINESSES have attacked a huge hike in the price the council charges to collect commercial waste.

From this Friday (October 1) the cost for traders to use the authority's rubbish service will increase by as much as 232 per cent, depending on what type of bin they have.

Which may be why some traders are now choosing to dispose of their rubbish by, er, dumping it across the pavement. Walthamstow High Street, beside the Arcade site, yesterday.

Cans of cooking oil and lots of cardboard boxes labelled ‘pommes frites’. And just across the road is… No, I’m not saying nuffink.
