Merton Council's looking to introduce a time-specific waste collection scheme in Wimbledon.
Under the scheme there'll be time bands for how long residential and commercial waste can be left out for collection and the time it takes to be collected.
It will be piloted in Wimbledon Village and Wimbledon Town Centre.
The council says it aims to improve the cleanliness and overall street environment.
These are the key features of the scheme:
- Businesses and residents can only leave their waste sacks on the public highway between 5am to 6am and 5pm to 6pm
- Waste must be fully contained in an authorised sack
- Any waste left outside of these times will result in the producer being issued with a fixed penalty notice
If the scheme is successful in Wimbledon it will then be rolled out across other town centres in Merton.
