To provide members with the Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy that has been created with the County Council and the 7 Lincolnshire authorities within the Lincolnshire Waste Partnership (report of the Portfolio Holder for Place enclosed).
Consideration was given to the report of the Portfolio Holder for Place which provided members with the Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy that had been created with the County Council and the seven Lincolnshire authorities within the Lincolnshire Waste Partnership.
The Cabinet considered a representation from Councillor F Biggadike which raised a number of issues, including any potential change of service, specific issues around black bags being left in the wrong locations, and collection of refuse from flats. The Leader responded that the issues raised would be taken on board.
The Cabinet agreed that it was important to work together with the other authorities to find a way that would suit all. However, the Authority had always been clear that it would not be forced into a Lincolnshire-wide agreement if it did not work for South Holland.
That the joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy be adopted.
(Other options considered:
· To do nothing.
Reasons for decision:
· To establish a culture with values in support of delivering the waste strategy and its vision, to deliver key objectives with a joint goal in mind, and to provide the best environmental options and value for money.)
