  • This skip is getting fuller day by day and the contents of which may constitute a health hazard.

    It has been dumped near the pre school and it’s prompt removal is desired.

    I appreciate that the council is extremely busy but would you please arrange for the removal of this unlit obstruction at your earliest convenience before someone gets hurt.

    Thank you.

  • The phone number on the skip is 07984861157. It appears to be a genuine number so maybe a word from someone in authority, viz within Bexley Council, may see a prompt response.

    Feel free to let me know how you got on.

    Thank you.

  • It is with great regret that I see that not only has the skip not been removed but it’s contents are now being blown out in the strong winds. Note the fence panel from the top of the skip was blown onto the pavement but fortunately, on this occasion no one was injured. This has been left to one side to prevent a reoccurrence. Other light weight material will no doubt be blown around in the winds until the skip is finally removed. We can only hope that the powers that be get the skip moved before someone gets hurt. Please respond as soon as possible.

  • Well here we are on the 17th October and the skip is still there some 7 weeks later.

    I do not know what the Council’s contractual service level arrangements are so please specify them so that all of us readers are aware of just how difficult it is to get a skip company to take one of their skips off the road.
