Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
To approve the introduction of new charges and changes to existing waste management charges, to fully recover all costs in accordance with legislation.
(a) with effect from 01/04/16, new charges are introduced for the provision of waste management services where legislation allows the council to make such charges, including charges for charities, schools, self-catering holiday accommodation and provision of commercial service administration, as outlined in appendix 1 to this report;
(b) existing charges for commercial waste collections, commercial recycling collections and garden sacks are increased with effect from 01/04/16 as outlined in appendix 2 to this report; and
in future years, charges across the waste management service are altered in order to ensure contractual committed inflation is recovered.
Reasons for the decision:
To ensure full cost of providing services are being met, in line with the councils agreed charging principles, where legislation allows the council to make charges for waste services.
To encourage waste reduction by applying the producer pays principle.
Alternative options considered:
Existing charges for commercial waste collections, commercial recycling collections, and garden sacks could remain the same but would no longer meet the cost of providing these services.
No new charges could be introduced but this would mean that the cost of providing the services would no longer be met.
Reason Key: Strategic nature / impact on communities;
