(Report of Director of Street Scene, Leisure and Technical Services)
A presentation was received from representatives of Urbaser prior to consideration of the report which provided an update on the implementation of the new Waste Services Contract from 1 March 2019 and the introduction of the new recycling services from 30 September 2019. The report sought approval of proposals relating to the Mobilisation Arrangements, an Operational Marketing Plan and a Domestic Recycling and Waste Collection Policy and Procedure Statement for the new Service. In response to comments regarding wheeled bins being left on the public highway, officers advised that a pragmatic approach was taken to enforcement and that the wording of Section 5 of Annex 2 to the report would be reviewed and clarified as appropriate.
In addition the report advised that the Government had recently published a new Resources and Waste Strategy and that consultations would be undertaken on Extended Producer Responsibility, Deposit Return Schemes and Consistent Collections from January 2019.
Following consideration by the Street Scene and Environment Services Advisory Board, the Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning and Infrastructure resolved that:
(1) the Mobilisation Arrangements for the new Waste and Recycling Service, as outlined in the report, be approved;
(2) the draft Operational Marketing Plan, as detailed at Annex 1 to the report, be agreed and implemented;
(3) subject to a review of Section 5 to reflect the comments expressed about enforcement action taken where wheeled bins cause an obstruction, the Domestic Recycling and Waste Collection Policy Procedure and Statement for the new Service, as detailed at Annex 2 to the report, be agreed; and
(4) the Partnership Manager submits an Annual Service Delivery Plan to a future meeting of the Street Scene and Environment Services Advisory Board.
In accordance with Paragraph 2 Annex 1 of the Executive Procedure Rules the Leader nominated the Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning and Infrastructure to take this decision in the absence of the Cabinet Portfolio holder (Street Scene and Environment Services)
