Over 3,000 Cheltenham residents give their view on new waste collection proposals
Cabinet to agree preferred option for waste and recycling collections
On Tuesday 6 December, cabinet members will be asked to approve the proposed option for waste and recycling collections.
In a recent public consultation where more than 3,000 residents shared their views, 'option a - no change to the way your waste and recycling is collected' received the most amount of votes.
This option will see an increase in the amount of items which can be collected from the kerbside. There will be no change to the frequency of collections and the recycling boxes will stay the same. As part of the improvements, new vehicles will be purchased and residents may be informed of a change to their collection day, when the service launches late in 2017.
If the recommendation is approved by cabinet members, it will then go to full council on 15 December for formal approval of the budget required.
Councillor Chris Coleman, cabinet member for clean and green environment said: ''I am pleased that we are now in a position to move forward with the proposed option for our waste and recycling services. To have received so many responses from the public is overwhelming and again I'd like to thank residents for their input.''
