Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report that highlighted the wide range of work carried out in the city to help students to manage the waste they produced and to encourage them to dispose of it responsibly.

 

The Executive Member noted the high level of student accommodation in the Osbaldwick and Derwent Ward, in particular in Osbaldwick and asked officers to also consider this area.1

 

It was highlighted that at the end of the previous academic year waste issues raised by residents, ward members and landlords led to some policies being restructured. A variety of initiatives had already taken place and to remind students to be responsible residents in a community and to avoid a large waste problem occurring at the end of the academic year, ongoing promotions with students would take place.

 

Resolved:

 

(i)      That the report be noted.

(ii)      That option A, to utilise the arrangements as detailed in the

          report, be approved.

(iii)     That Osbaldwick and Derwent Ward also be recognised as a problem area.

(iv)    That a review on the costs to the authority be reported.

(v)     That the improvements made to cleansing and fly tipping be measured and a report be brought to a future meeting.

 

Reason: To ensure the services involved develop a coordinated

programme of work to deliver in student areas
