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.
