Council sets out resident consultation programme for new street-cleaning and waste collections 

Merton Council has confirmed its community engagement series to give people the chance to give their views on street cleaning and waste collections, as the council prepares to find a new arrangement for these services from 2025. 

Over a period of six weeks starting from today residents will be offered a range of opportunities to tell us what they think about their street cleaning and waste services and help shape its future. 

Councillor Natasha Irons, Cabinet Member for Local Environment, Green Spaces and Climate Change explains more about the ‘Keep it Clean’ consultation. 

People can share their views in a number of ways: 

Online survey:

  • Open for six weeks until Tuesday 22 November.  

Online meetings:

  • Takes place on Tuesday 1 November at 3pm and Thursday 10 November at 7pm.  

In-person: 

  • A series of pop-up events on local high streets will run until 4 November. Residents are encouraged to come along to talk to officers and complete the survey. 
  • Resident groups will be offered the opportunity of a meeting to discuss issues.
