Councillor McCandless
“At our Rates setting meetings in February, there was a cost reduction proposal of reducing brown bin collections in the Winter season Nov - Feb.
This proposal was a condensed version of an original, to prevent any loss of jobs.
I appreciate that food waste is a major issue and it is estimated UK households throw away over 7M tonnes of food and drink annually so we need to address this seriously.
This is a fairly recent innovation throughout our Borough, approx 4 years, and I would have serious concerns that the good discipline we are introducing could be impacted with a four month interruption to regular service. It took many years for the “blue bin” service to be established.
A few incidents of food waste being disposed of improperly could certainly cost more than the proposed £30K saving.”
