This report provides a high-level review of the garden waste service and options for consideration going forward.

Decision:

It was resolved:

(1)      That the Committee authorised officers to explore opportunities to improve the garden waste service as outlined in the report.

 

Minutes:

The Committee received a report providing a high-level review of the garden waste service and options for consideration going forward.

The following matters were considered:

a)            Variations amongst Surrey Authorities and opportunity to review. The Committee noted that garden waste recycling services varied across local authorities in Surrey. Epsom and Ewell Borough Council had last reviewed its garden waste service several years ago, and undertaking a review at the present time would enable Officers to identify proposals for the service’s future development.

b)            Success of current service. Officers informed the Committee that the existing service was successful and made approximately £200,000 per annum contribution to the Council’s finances net of costs.

Following consideration, it was resolved:

(1)      That the Committee authorised officers to explore opportunities to improve the garden waste service as outlined in the report.
