Herne Hill news, chitter chatter and gossip

Rumours in HH that someone's leaving poisoned meat in Brockwell Park - along the cinder pitch / wild flowers bit. Three dogs have apparently died, a friend had their dog's stomach pumped.

I heard this today too. Which bit is that exactly?

I generally try to support independent shops, but every time I go to Seasons I regret it. They charge top whack (more than Dugard in some cases!) and a lot of the produce isn’t that good quality. I just came home with half a dozen eggs and as I was putting them away noticed they were more than two weeks past their use by date. :mad:

Does anyone go to the Regent anymore? I haven't been for ages but don't want to lose touch with all the regulars I used to see in there.

Does anyone know where I can recycle light bulbs? - there used to be those special recycling bin things on the corner of Railton road, according to Lambeth.gov it's still there, but I don't think I've seen it there for a while. Is it there now?

Also old tins of paint etc - I don't have a car so going to the smugglers way dump is a bit tricky - any ideas?

I think you can take them to the council place in Vale street behind West Norwood Cemetery (on the 322 route).

I have a similar problem. Loads of "Double D" fluorescent tubes (contain mercury).
When it gets more summery I intent to take them there armed with my council tax bill (suggests driving licence as proof of a Lambeth address).

PS the reason the bins disappeared is there's no money in it, and Lambeth didn't get a new contractor. Maybe too busy with their Nu Town Hall?

I took some old tins of paint to the smugglers way place last year... Made the mistake of asking which section they should go in and the answer was that they couldn't take them at all as they count as hazardous waste therefore I must take them home again, call up lambeth, arrange for a special collection blah blah.

Anyway - if you've got any awkward waste to get rid of, why not just dump it all over the pavement round the corner from my front door during the night? That seems to be a popular option.

Only in liquid form. If you stir in something to make them solidify (cement/filler/sawdust etc) then you can dispose of them there or in your normal rubbish.

If you know anyone who's a southwark resident and can borrow ID then the tip off old kent road will take liquid paint for recycling.

Years ago the Lambeth waste site on Vale St. used to accept paint as donations for reuse if sufficient amount remained in the tin and the paint was still useful, IIRC. Don't know if that's still the case though.

It's not. I tried to do just that last year and was told they don't take it and you have to take it to Smugglers Way.

Ditto. If it's not a full tin they won't take it at vale st. IIRC advise on Lambeth website was to let it go solid and put in normal bin

I thought the advise was to let it go solid and then take it to smugglers way - did I read that wrong? just been to their site A to Z of what to do with your waste | Lambeth Council.

Lambeth won't collect it and we don't drive. However I also found this link:
Get rid of hazardous waste | Lambeth Council which says City of london collects hazardous waste including paint. don't know if that costs anything.

Is it still closed? Do you know if buses are on a diversion? I got caught in it just as it happened this afternoon and they were just sending buses back to west Norwood at that point.

I'm on a 196 which is taking us over Tulse Hill instead of through HH. I had hoped that, being on diversion, it would fire past all the stops, but it is basically doing a 2 route.

,I think the diversion must be over now as I've just got to tulse Hill and there was a 468 coming up from HH and another one going down.
