To set out the councils preferred waste collection model and to agree the implementation plan for the new waste management service

To confirm the council’s preferred waste collection option and to agree to implement the new waste management service for the county.

 

The council’s Waste Management contracts for the collection service and the disposal service are due to expire in 2023 and 2024. There are aspirations in the County Plan to address the climate and ecological emergency which seeks to protect the environment, use our resources in the most efficient way and become a carbon neutral County by 2030.

 

The council launched a waste collection consultation with the public in December 2020 following recommendations from the waste task and finish group in September 2020 and in response to expected changes in national legislation.

The consultation has now concluded and the council will set out its preferred future operating model with a view to procuring the future collection and disposal contracts over the next three years.
