The Council put out information that these boxes would be collected in the two weeks commencing 24 September 2018. In many areas they were not.
At the Council meeting on 8 October, councillors were told that the delay had been caused by the fact that Veolia was completing its roll-out of new collection arrangements in Merton. Veolia now has the capacity, apparently, to pick up the redundant boxes by the end of October.
So, please keep your boxes at the front of the property. Residents are reminded that Veolia will only pick up the boxes if they are empty.
