26/01/2015 - Delivery and Administration Costs of New Bins ref: 1572 Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)
It is the Council’s policy to provide for a significant number of new dwellings in all parts of the Borough to 2030 to support economic growth and development and to ensure that there is an appropriate mix of house types, sizes and tenures.
With an increase in the number of new dwellings there is a corresponding increase in the number of waste bins required. To sensibly manage this budget pressure it is proposed that developers be charged for the delivery and administration costs of new waste bins.
In the first 6 months of this year there has been an unprecedented increase in requests for new bins, over 30% higher than the previous year. In line with many other Authorities the Council is looking at ways to manage this increase without passing on additional costs to the general public.
