Food Waste and Take-away Containers

I can’t understand why the takeaway food industry are allowed to use non recyclable packaging like Polystyrene and plastic knives and forks. Our area of Catford has a large number of takeaway restaurants which must generate a huge amount of waste, leading to a percentage ending up on our streets.

Somebody regularly dumps sacks of takeaway waste at the end of Daneby Road, and to make matters worst the foxes rip open the sacks and rubbish blows all over the road, encouraging other vermin.

I often walk through Catford on a Sunday morning and the high street always looks terrible, what must visitors think of our town? There’s rubbish everywhere, bins overflowing, empty bottles and drink cans in the road, empty smelly pizza boxes. There must be a case for restricting opening hours of some businesses unless they can clean up the generated waste, we definitely need more/better management of street cleaning in Lewisham.
