Petition to: reverse the imposition of wheelie bins in Chiswick and Brentford in terraced houses with tiny front gardens

This petition is now closed, as its deadline has passed.

We the undersigned petition Hounslow Council to reverse the imposition of wheelie bins in Chiswick and Brentford in terraced houses with tiny front gardens. More details

More details from petition creator

Many streets in Chiswick and Brentford consist of small terraced houses with tiny front gardens, which are totally unsuitable to house a wheelie bin of any type. Many of these gardens are not paved, instead using decorative surfaces such as pebbles, slate, gravel or bark, and of course plants, so a bin could not be rolled across these. Most residents take pride in their front gardens, which are the first thing their visitors see, and they do not want them blighted by a large, ugly wheelie bin. In addition, most Chiswick and Brentford residents recycle to a large extent and therefore have only one small bag of landfill rubbish per week, at most, so they do not need a wheelie bin.

Wheelie bins have been imposed on terraced streets, at short notice and with absolutely no consultation, despite Council assurances that this would not happen. We petition the Council to reconsider this misguided decision. If the scheme does go ahead, we would like a guarantee that black bags will continue to be collected from houses which have chosen to opt out of the wheelie bin scheme.
