    This end of the road has definitely not been properly cleaned for months. It is frequently covered with litter,bottles and silver canisters. I have reported this problem before and have on occasions cleaned some of the litter myself. The reported bag of silver canisters were removed but nothing else! There are parked cars here so it needs to be manually cleaned on a regular basis. Street cleaning used to be a regular service but now seems not the case. On a walk to Welling High Street it was quite sad to see how much litter has been left in the streets.

  • I reported this issue on 17th April. A street cleaning vehicle did come round Maxwell Road a few days later but appears not to have gone to the area concerned in Cavendish Avenue. It’s possible there were parked cars so it would not be possible to clear the rubbish. I have today gone and spent 1 hour clearing all the rubbish myself .. poo bags , cans .. some filled with urine... bottles , broken glass, silver canisters, plaster board and metal strips. This area is continually being used as a litter dump. It has not been cleaned for months. I plan to take this issue up with the local MP as nothing seems to be done about it. I’m now off to deposit 3 black sacks at the tip!!

  • Today I Noticed a Neighbour from Tyndall road cleaning rubbish that had been fly tipped in the road in cavendish avenue which run a long the side of my house in Huxley she told me she does this regularly as when it is reported to the council it never seems to be done properly I told her I agreed that the operator of the road sweeper will not get out and pick anything up manually. This is not good we pay a fortune in council tax so the roads should be clean properly please try harder it is not a good image for the Borough or the area and we all don’t want to rubbish and silver gas canisters everywhere please come and collect them.
