Street Waste Action Team (SWAT)

The Street Waste Action Team (SWAT) has been formed to tackle problems around rubbish dumping, particularly around communal on-street bins. Achieving permanent behavioural change to improve the street scene will be of utmost importance. The aims of the project are:

  • to substantially reduce rubbish dumping on your streets
  • to ensure all residents are aware of how and when to dispose of their rubbish and recycling
  • to ensure residents understand the best ways to report problems to us so they can be tackled quickly and effectively

Target areas

Wards already visited:

  • Hyde Park
  • Vincent Square​
  • Tachbrook
  • Warwick

Next engagement area:

  • Bayswater

Local events and street visits

Our team will be visiting properties to inform residents of how to dispose of their waste and recycling correctly.

We will be holding a series of drop-in events where you can come and ask any questions about dumping or cleansing related issues:

  • Tuesday 8 January 2019 from 9am at St Stephens Gardens junction with Westbourne Park Road
  • Tuesday 15 January 2019 from 9am in Porchester Square Gardens - Westminster’s animal warden will also be in attendance to discuss any welfare issues residents have
  • Saturday 19 January 2019 from 9am in Queensway junction with Westbourne Grove, next to the public toilets
