Much maligned alternate weekly collections (AWC) have gained another detractor, Mayor of London Ken Livingstone. In a recent statement he joined the debate on the suitability of AWC within high density city communities. Livingstone said: Harrow Council is the only council to date in London to have introduced AWC. I am concerned that other boroughs will soon follow Harrows lead, despite the fact no research has been done as to its success in London.
