Stirling Council Propose Big Changes to Waste Services

Garden Waste to be Charged For

The Council agenda for the 30th June 2020 meeting proposes some significant changes to the waste service.

Council Agenda available here: http://minutes.stirling.gov.uk/PDFs/Scouncil/Agendas/CouncilAgenda.pdf

Item 11 — Starting page 134

Recommendations

Council is asked to approve:

the diamond bin replacement project be funded from service efficiencies outlined in this report;

an extension of collection frequencies on both residual (grey) and recycling (blue) bins from two-weekly to four-weekly;

the removal of glass collection services; and

the introduction of a chargeable garden waste service.

Please note that the first the Conservative group saw of these proposals was when agenda was released. To our knowledge there has been no consultation with all 23 councillors and more importantly no consultation with all of the Stirling Council communities.

The paper implies that garden waste would be charged at £35 per annum and per brown bin.
