Items referred from Council
- Meeting of City Environment, South Downs & The Sea Committee, Tuesday, 20th June, 2023 4.00pm (Item 5.)
To consider items referred from the last meeting of Full Council held on 30 March 2023
5.1 The Committee considered a petition, referred from Full Council, requesting a relocation of recycling bins in the Coldean area.
5.2 The Chair provided the following response:
“Thank you for your petition. This site is one of a number of points across the city that provides additional recycling capacity for residents to dispose of excess dry mixed recycling, as well as materials that are not collected in their kerbside collections. It includes cartons, small electrical equipment, textiles and shoes.
This is a good general location for a bring site as the pavement is wide enough to accommodate the containers. It is also on a popular junction and route, making it easy for residents to dispose of their recyclable waste.
Officers have reviewed suitable alternatives in the area, and one has been identified, namely the space on the pavement to the other side of the entrance to Ruby’s car park, to the left as you look at the building.
We would be grateful for Coldean Residents' Association, Coldean Community Organisation and Coldean Neighbourhood Planning Forum’s views on this location.
This has been judged to be the only suitable alternative location. If the organisations are agreeable, then we can arrange for the containers to be moved”.
5.3 Resolved- That the Committee note the petition.
