Officers advised that on the 15th July 2010 they were presented with  4 slightly different petitions all registering concern at the new refuse and recycling collection arrangements in the area. Initial consultation took place prior to 15th July 2010 and further consultation again on the 25th August in light of the petitions, to gather further information as to why the refuse arrangements were working in some streets and not others.

 

Following consultation, for streets in the Poppleton Road and Acomb area, there were 3 options for residents to choose from to identify their preference for how refuse should be collected and in the Leeman Road are residents were given 2 options as outlined in the report.

 

Officers advised that the new scheme is now up and running and are satisfied that they have worked alongside residents to deliver a service which best fits the area.
