Waste Collection Methodology

25/10/2019 - Waste Collection Methodology

Resolved:  (i)      That Option 3 be approved; that is, to:

a)   continue with source separated recycling as per the current model and monitor the impact of increasing the range of plastics collected;

b)   commission a review of council owned; recycling bring banks, to include materials not collected at the doorstep; and

c)   commission a more fundamental review of the cost impact of changing the collection methodology for all materials.


(ii)      That the preparation of a procurement process based on a new waste fleet be commenced, and a report brought to a future Executive meeting to approve the vehicle and service specification.


Reason:     To ensure that the council can improve the resilience of waste services by replacing a life expired fleet whilst exploring the environmental, budget and partner implications of changing the collection methodology.
