New Waste Collection Services Policies (Wheeled Bin Suitability Criteria) pdf icon PDF 101 KB

Report of Executive Director (Environment and Place)

Additional documents:


The Cabinet considered a report of the Executive Director (Environment and Place) presenting the Wheeled Bin Suitability Criteria Policy which is required in order to implement the delivery of a transformed Recycling and Waste service, moving from a weekly sack service to a fortnightly wheeled bin service.  An updated version of the policy was circulated to Councillors at the meeting.


On consideration of the report a number of questions were asked by Councillors and responded to by the Leader of the Council and officers.


Arising from discussion, it was noted that in order to identify HMOs the Council would, in the first instance, utilise council tax records and planning related documentation as part of the desktop study in the context of the wider property assessment, to ensure they receive the correct service for their needs.




That the overarching Wheeled Bin Suitability Criteria Policy, as circulated at the meeting, setting out how the Council and its recycling and waste collection contractor will assess properties in Southend-on-Sea City for their suitability to receive and accommodate wheeled bins for the collection of household recycling and waste under the new services to be rolled out during 2025, be approved.


Reasons for decision:


To give clarity and transparency on the approach to be taken for the procurement, and the delivery of the service.


Other options:




Note: this is an Executive Function

Not eligible for call-in.

Cabinet Member: Cllr Davidson
