Last Thursday also saw the inaugural meeting of the waste and recycling subcommittee.
The committee will be looking to help develop the council’s waste strategy for the period up to 2015, in addition the committee will also be having a partial review of how well the current system of boxes and bins is working and I would welcome any comments on this.
In particular one of the things that it will be useful to see is how many people may have been put off using any of the recycling options that are available either because of previous problems with the set-up or problems that are occurring now.
Some of the things that the strategy will consider will be around how waste and recycling will be collected in the future, and whether some of the current methods such as the plastic bottle bring sites is the best way of doing it.
All in all it should be an interesting subcommittee with the options to look both at how well (or otherwise) things are been done now, and how things will be done in the future.
