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.

The Conservative Councillors have produced the below (draft) amendment which we intend to put to the vote at the meeting of full council in order to replace the above propose recommendations.

Council notes the report that officers have brought forward and rejects:

The 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

Council regrets its failure to consult on these proposed changes and requires future changes of this nature should be subject to public consultation, full public health, environmental and equalities impact assessments.

Council agrees to review the recycling service following the successful implementation of the deposit return scheme.

Council mandates council officers to bring forward options to pay for the diamond bin replacement to the council meeting in the autumn as part of the overall budget setting process. This should include options to spend the money directly from capital rather than through borrowing.
