PRIME Minister David Cameron did not visit Ealing Town Hall - but his image wielding a rubbish-cutting saw was mocked-up by environmental campaigners.
Members of Ealing Friends for the Earth joined the charity's supporters across the country in a day of action on Friday (18) demanding the government do more to help councils cut rubbish.
They want it to help councils halve the amount of waste that goes to landfill by 2020 by reducing, reusing and recycling more.
Jules Tennick, of Station Road, Hanwell, said: “While Ealing Council runs the local rubbish and recycling collections, they need a boost from Westminster to be able to improve services and send less rubbish to be buried and burnt.
“Ealing Council are are doing well and are in the top ten for reducing household waste, reducing it by eight per cent between the financial years beginning in 2008 and 2009. But more needs to be done and we think targets need to be set.
“People in Ealing can already recycle a wide variety of materials but we are all frustrated by having to bin things like unnecessary packaging and the stuff the council doesn’t recycle.”
