This report asks the Executive Member to decide what action should be taken in response to a petition on green waste collection for East Mount Road.

Additional documents:

Decision:

Resolved:  That Option 2 be approved and that future provision be considered later in 2019, as part of the ongoing bags to bins project.

 

Reason:     In order to respond to residents’ concerns and progress the provision of green waste collection in accordance with the outcome of the bags to bins project in this area of the city.

Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report which sought a decision on the action to be taken in response to a petition received from residents of East Mount Road regarding green waste collection.

 

The petition, signed by 39 residents, called on the council to look for suitable collection arrangements for green waste in their road.  East Mount Road was currently in a bagged waste collection area and council policy was not to collect green waste in these areas.  However, officers were currently undertaking a review to consider whether some bagged waste areas could be moved to a wheelie bin collection service.  Options available were therefore:

Option 1 – to note the petition and take no further action, or

Option 2 – consider future provision as part of the ongoing bags to bins project, later in 2019.  This was the recommended option.

 

In response to matters raised under public participation, officers confirmed that, for health and safety reasons, the council did not provide a bagged collection service for green waste.

 

Resolved:  That Option 2 be approved and that future provision be considered later in 2019, as part of the ongoing bags to bins project.

 

Reason:     In order to respond to residents’ concerns and progress the provision of green waste collection in accordance with the outcome of the bags to bins project in this area of the city.
