Minutes:

 Martin Litherland - Head of Waste Management Waste Services, Wiltshire Council gave a short presentation that outlined Wiltshire Council’s Consultation on a new waste management strategy to shape how the Council collects and manages household waste and recycling.

 

The meeting was able to take part in a short voting session that would feed into the main consultation.

 

Points made included:

 

·         The council needed to develop a new waste management strategy in order to shape how it collected and managed household waste and recycling in Wiltshire.

 

·         The strategy needed to take into account Wiltshire’s current challenges and also major developments in waste services.

 

·         That following the award of a collection contract to Hills Waste, kerbside services would change from 30 July 2018. These changes would make it easier for residents to recycle more at home.

 

·         That Wiltshire Council was currently undertaking a public consultation to ascertain the views of residents which would help to develop a new waste management strategy.

 

·         The questions in the consultation were based on the outcome of workshops held with Wiltshire Council elected members in July 2017.
