Noisy neighbours see ghetto blasting equipment recycled

A big pile of confiscated stereo equipment is to be either refurbished or recycled.

Noise officers from 11 London boroughs have arranged for the 150 or so amplifiers, ghetto blasters, CD players and turn tables to be taken away by local London recycling firm New Leaf as part of Noise Action Week.

Wandsworth cabinet member for the environment and leisure Malcolm Grimston said: “We are very pleased to have co-ordinated this recycling initiative because it sends out a very powerful message to people who make their neighbour’s lives a misery through noise.

“If they don’t mend their ways and turn down the volume, they will find their stereos being used by people who are more thoughtful towards their neighbours.”
