Petition: Say NO to charges at Villiers Road tip!
Kingston Council are proposing a number of changes to VILLIERS ROAD TIP , which will further increase fly tipping in our borough.
They plan a new “fair use” policy which restricts the number of visits a resident can make and a CHARGE of £5 per bag for non-household waste.
Non-Household waste is defined as rubble and hardcore, but also house fixtures and fittings, such as carpets and tiles, and also sheds and fencing/ timber. These are the things a resident might have to dispose of after a small renovation project at home.
The online booking remains, with residents who have no access to computers, asked to get family and friends to access the booking for them, which is discriminatory.
Pedestrians and cyclists are only allocated a paltry one hour per week on a Sunday afternoon.
❌online booking system stays
❌ only 20 visits per year ( less than twice a month)
❌ vans/ lorries only 12 visits per year
❌pedestrians/cyclists only 1 hr on Sunday
❌charge for DIY waste/ house fittings – £5 per bag
There are some real concerns that charging for access is against the Litter Strategy document published jointly in 2017 by DCLG, Defra & Dept of Transport that this can inconvenience residents and lead to further fly tipping and littering – a blight on our beautiful borough.
