Waste Management Review – Waste Collection

Further to the adoption of the Council’s new Integrated Waste Management Strategy in July 2021 and subsequent planning for additional commissioning this report seeks to agree the council’s preferred waste collection arrangements necessary to implement the strategy.


The council’s Waste Management contracts for the collection service and the disposal service are due to expire in 2023 and 2024. 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. With the consultation concluded, 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.
