June 2012 – Written Question – Wheelie bins bought for Garden Waste Collections

by Nigel Bakhai on 12 June, 2012

Question

Would the portfolio holder (for Transport & Environment) please clarify whether the council has any plans to return or resell any unused wheelie bins bought to collect garden waste?

Answer

Wheelie bins have an extremely long shelf life and it is impossible to predict future demand levels. Over the coming years customer participation levels are likely to increase, customers may change from sacks to bins and there will be a degree of replacement in the event of loss/damage. As this is the first year of the service, it would not be prudent to describe stock as unused and there are therefore no plans to return or resell any unused wheelie bins bought to collect garden waste.
