Waste and Recycling Collection Round Design Options
The Managing Director of Allerdale Waste Services presented to the Committee a report which provided options for the future waste and recycling collection round designs, and outlined the associated annual costs of those options and the impact they would have on the Council’s annual revenue budget.
The Shareholder Committee were asked to review the options and provide confirmation of the option which was to be fully developed for implementation in 2021/22.
Members asked whether any further scrutiny of the costs associated with each of the proposed options had been undertaken, to confirm what savings would be achieved which would have a huge influence on their decision.
It was also requested it be useful to have more detail around any assumptions made around each of the proposed options, including what the mobilisations plans would look like.
It was explained that meetings were due to take place by the end of the week to consider the costs in more detail.
