Weeks worth of rubbish has piled up in east London after binmen went on a two-week strike over pay.
Mounds of boxes, bin bags and crates have been discarded at the roadside and remain uncollected amid the walkout.
Lord Alan Sugar, who is from east London, said on Monday the "stock pile of garbage" was shocking.
In a post on Twitter, he said: "I am riding through Bethnal Green Road in Hackney, my old Manor. I am shocked at the stock pile of garbage that is all over the pavements. It is not days of stuff it looks like weeks. What is going on?"
It comes after more than 200 council workers started striking on September 18 when Unite members rejected the national local government pay increase offer of £1,925, which the union said was below the rate of inflation.
