Wandsworth Report It app helping keep local streets clean

Published: Friday 20th October 17

Hundreds of people are using the “Wandsworth Report It” app to pass on information to the town hall about a range of neighbourhood concerns like flytips, graffiti and broken paving stones.

The app offers a quick and easy way for residents to request a clean up or a repair. It is available for Android, Windows and iOS devices and can be downloaded from the Apple, Android or Windows app store, or via the council’s website.

Using the app to report problems via a smartphone or tablet couldn’t be simpler. If you spot a problem you can take a photo of it and the app automatically logs its location. You can then add some comments or a description and once submitted it is passed straight to the town hall for action.

Most people use the app to report flytips and in the last year the number of reports has grown substantially.

Figures published by Defra yesterday (Thursday) show that the app can play an important role in helping the council keep Wandsworth’s streets clean.

According to Defra, there were more than 366,000 reported incidents of flytipping across London last year, with Wandsworth accounting for less than 1.2 per cent of the total.

Residents and business can use the app to report the following issues:

Flytipping

Graffiti

Missed rubbish or recycling collection

Request a street clean

Hazardous waste

Flyposting

Overgrown trees

Damaged paving

Overflowing or damaged litter bins

Broken street lights (non TfL roads)

Request recycling sacks

Hi, will the ReportIt be updated to enable reporting of anti-social parking, e.g. on corners and across pavements?

Over hanging trees are a nuisance. So is the new fashion for clipped hedges that reach over the pavement eg westover rd. My bli d son regularly scatches his face when using his white can to track the inner edge of the path. Make this problem better known and reportable pleased

There are usually a lot of rubbish in front of the Anchor home on Mapleton road as well as in the St Georges Park especially in the second part of it by a bench in the right corner.

If the street cleaning contract (weekly cleaning) was honoured by Continental Landscapes Earlsfield would be cleaner and not need regular complaints. Apps are only any good if the complaints are responded to. Not the case currently. Just another excuse for our locally mucky streets. It may be autumn but they should be able to manage leaves and domestic litter.

The app has indeed been good and Wandsworth is (usually) very reactive to any issues we might have. Although Liz's suggestion seems a bit hard to implement could the council investigate actually fining drivers with idling engines, especially considering this happens beside a school?

How about doing something about motorists who sit with 'engines idling'. They sit in Vicarage Crescent none stop - vans, mini cabs 'school run' mums. Went to Sainsburys in Battersea Park Road - van with engine running - came back a good 30 minutes later van still sitting there with engine running. All to do with not paying to park. Caught the 170 to Royal Hospital Road in Chelsea on Friday - cut through to the Kings Road and saw signs up saying - No Idling Engines - with a £40 fine for offenders - how about Wandsworth taking up this solution to idling engines on the 'apps'.

The state of Wandsworth pavements is a disgrace - tree roots making our pavements unsafe to walk along. Walking along Shuttleworth Road, Fieldview, Vicarage Crescent, Battersea High Street/Square - none of them safe with uneven paving stones. No doubt other residents can name unsafe paving also.

I would just like to applaud Wandsworth council on the speedy response to any issues that I have raised re graffiti on this app.
