Household Waste Recycling Sites

Report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture

Decision:

1)             That Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee approve for a public consultation to take place on 1) introducing charges for some waste at the HWRS and 2) to implement ID checks at the HWRS.

Minutes:

41.1      The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that sought approval to undertake a public consultation on proposals to introduce changes at the two Household Waste Recycling Sites on whether to introduce charges for some types of waste and to introduce ID checks. The purpose of the measures was to ensure Brighton & Hove taxpayers were not paying for the disposal of non-Brighton & Hove waste.

 

41.2      Councillor Brown stated that she was not keen on charges for non-commercial waste at it may lead to increased fly tipping and the consultation would be useful to gauge residents feeling on the matter.

 

41.3      In response to questions raised by Councillor Wilkinson and Councillor Williams, the Head of Business Support & Projects confirmed that data on an increase in fly tipping could be gathered from additional authorities and discussions were in progress with Veolia on the system for ID checks.

 

41.4      RESOLVED- That Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee approve for a public consultation to take place on 1) introducing charges for some waste at the HWRS and 2) to implement ID checks at the HWRS.
