Harrow Recycling Centre: now for Harrow residents only!

All Change on 13 November!

The rules on waste are changing in Harrow – from 13 November only residents of Harrow borough will be allowed to use the Council tip, located at Forward Drive, Kenton.

Harrow Council is making the change to reduce queues and cut costs for Harrow taxpayers. Almost 30% of visitors to the tip are thought to come from outside the borough – after some other councils in West London shut their recycling centres to non-residents.

Cllr Graham Henson, Harrow Council portfolio holder for environment, said:

“With one stroke, we’re slashing the queues at the waste recycling centre and saving huge amounts of money. I’m fed up with people from all over the place bringing their waste to Harrow. My message to people from other boroughs is – we don’t want your rubbish!”

From 13 November, Harrow residents will need to bring their driving licence with them to the recycling centre as proof of address. If they don’t have a driving licence, then proof of residence such as council tax bill, utility bill, bank statement and photo ID will do.

Part of his duties was to present prizes to the winners of the school art competition. The winner’s design will be on the cover of next year’s Pinner Village Show Programme. 

Well done to Pinner Rotary Club for organising such a wonderful show and for everyone who managed to dodge the rain showers.

Temporary Road Closure – Elm Park Road 31 August 17

I have had confirmation from Harrow Council that the tree being removed tomorrow is the Ash tree next to 41 Elm Park Road.

There is major dieback throughout the canopy, unfortunately to the extent that crown reduction would not be of benefit.

Final Word on the Summer Band Concerts

What does it take to put on a band concert! A final Word

• Planning

• Council Permission

• Volunteers, more volunteers.

o We had over 20 people turned up to help erect/dismantle the staging & marquee for each band concert.
o Over 15 stewards helped in the course of the season.
o Four Tea Ladies ensured that the band and stewards didn’t go hungry.
o A First Aider in attendance for every concert – luckily not needed.

• The Bands

• The audience – you raised over £1,900 for the West House & Heath Robinson Museum Trust – Thank You.

• Here are a few pictures of some of the people who make this such a wonderful community event. With the volunteers they show you are never too young to volunteer.
