Around 290 tonnes of rubbish has been cleared after this year’s Notting Hill Carnival. RBKC’s contractors SUEZ had over 200 people working into the early hours of Monday and Tuesday in an operation involving more than 30 refuse trucks and mechanical sweepers. The team also used a large motorway vehicle to wash down the roads. The clean-up finished at 3am this morning.
During the Carnival there were tin and plastic exchange stations and ‘Gum Drop’ boards for people to stick their gum. There was also an ‘Every Can Counts’ recycling point, where you could give five empty cans for a free soft drink which generated five large containers of clean recycling. All good.
