Minutes:

Officers introduced the report on the DEFRA consultation on the disposal of DIY waste at household waste recycling centres and the proposed response from the Council outlined in appendix A.

 

Concerns were discussed with the Executive Member regarding the proposed changes to the disposal of DIY waste at household waste recycling centres Officers deemed the proposed changes would be hard to implement and would likely prove less cost effective to implement for the Council. It was also noted that the changes could encourage traders push the burden of building waste removal onto households. The Executive Member agreed with the concerns of officers and added that they could lead to more fly tipping and a larger environmental impact with more journeys in smaller vehicles transporting DIY waste. Therefore the Executive Member approved the proposed response at appendix A to the consultation.
