Refuse collections delays

During August many URS (the underground refuse system used on many Poplar Harca estates) collections have been missed by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets as a result of vehicle problems. This is entirely out of our control.

Tower Hamlets are currently providing a limited service and have redeployed their team in an attempt to clear the overspill as frequently as possible.

Unfortunately, there are many estates where these attempts have failed to keep refuse under control. We are doing everything we can to manage the situation and we are committed to clearing as much as we can within available resources.

Teams will continue to clear overspill bags until the full service is fully restored.

Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to resolve the situation. Any resident wishing to contact Tower Hamlets Council to find out more about refuse collection services can do so through the Council’s website or by calling them on 020 7364 5020.
