'More info' needed on Torfaen bin collections

FURTHER information is needed on waste collection options says Torfaen council’s committee members.

Torfaen council is undertaking a review of its residual waste collections ahead of a public consultation and the report will be the subject of a scrutiny committee.

At the pre-agenda meeting for the cleaner communities overview and scrutiny committee meeting, the report was discussed and further information was requested.

The report was formally rejected with a request for further information on how the three options were reached and the criteria used.

The scrutiny committee will now be held on Wednesday, April 9, at 1.30pm.

From 2015/16 recycling targets in Wales will increase with councils fined in the region of £100,000 for every one per cent they fall below the line.

The council is currently investigating three options designed to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill including maintaining a fortnightly collection with a smaller black wheelie bin, a fortnightly collection of two refuse bags per household, or moving to a monthly collection using the existing 240 litre black wheelie bin.

The council plans to carry out a public consultation towards the end of April.

Don't Torfaen normally just guess? I wonder how much money was wasted on this report, it beggars believe that they didn't include how they came to the conclusions, this further highlights the overpaid amateurs that run Torfaen, the sooner this is privatised the better at least then the private operator would be accountable and paid on performance rather than scaremongering.
