RESIDENTS CLEANING RESPONSIBILITIES
To keep a pleasant living environment on our estates all leaseholders, tenants, sub-tenants and visitors are expected to behave responsibly and follow important housekeeping rules. A breach of these rules is considered anti-social behaviour and will be dealt with accordingly.
Clean outside your property regularly – walkways and landings outside your own front door
Place rubbish in the large external bins or refuse chutes if available.
Separate recyclables from household rubbish and put it in the designated recycle bins.
Avoid blocking refuse chutes – When using the chutes use small carrier bags.
Leave bulky items at your nearest bin store/ bulk collection point. If you need help call 0207 450 8000
Dispose of your cigarette ends responsibly – Don’t litter them in the communal areas.
