Minutes:

29.1      The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that provided Modernisation progress update and information and updates relating to several Cityclean service areas since the January 2020 update. The report was also seeking approval to progress two key areas of service improvement and modernisation: the expansion of the communal bin service and investment in IT systems.

 

29.2      In response to questions raised by Councillor Wares, it was explained that more information on the Waste Strategy would be brought to the November meeting of the committee and a report on the effectiveness of the Weed Management programme to a meeting in the New Year. Surplus from commercial services was being reinvested back into the service, particularly on the health and safety measures needed and this was a specific service focus currently.

 

29.3      In response to questions raised by Councillor Brown, it was explained that the everyone on the garden waste collection waiting list should have been contacted and any residents that may have been missed could be followed up. A specific project to improve park bins would be discussed with residents and stakeholders over the winter months ready for the summer of 2021.
