FOI-DPA Complaints, London Councils

Dear Mr Connor,


Thank you for your request for information, received by London Councils on
14 October 2013.


Unfortunately London Councils does not hold the information that you have
requested. London Councils is not a local authority and is not responsible
for front-line litter services. Rather, London Councils is a cross-party
organisation representing London’s 32 borough councils and the City of
London. We develop policy and provide London-wide services such as the
Freedom Pass.


You may wish to contact your local council, who would be responsible for
litter services in your local area. Contact details for all London local
authorities are available on the London Councils website through the
London Government Directory:


Further information about the Freedom of Information Act is available on
the website of the Information Commissioner’s Office:


Yours sincerely,


John Erde
