Report Title ‘Let’s Talk Rubbish’ Consultation Results & Waste Regulations
Assessment for Proposed Changes to Waste & Recycling Service
Key Decision Yes Item No.
Ward All
Contributors Executive Director Customer Services
Class Open Date: 10 February 2016
1. Summary
1.1. This paper reports back the results of two pieces of work that have been undertaken over the
past few months. The first sections looks at the results from the ‘Let’s Talk Rubbish’
consultation and later sections look at potential service scenarios against environmental
performance, financial implications and operational deliverability and the likely compliance
with The Waste (England and Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2012. Any potential changes
to the waste and recycling services will be to kerbside properties in the first instance, i.e.
those typically who use a wheelie bin for their refuse and recycling collections. Services
provided to estates will be looked at in later phases.
2. Purpose
2.1. The purpose of this report details the findings of the ‘Let’s Talk Rubbish’ consultation and the
Necessity and TEEP (Technical, Environmental & Economic Practicability) Assessment,
which tests compliance with the Waste Regulations 2012. Recommendations are then
proposed as to the potential future development of Lewisham’s Waste & Recycling Services
for kerbside properties, i.e. those that typically have wheelie bin collections for refuse and
3. Recommendations
The Mayor is recommended to:
3.1 Note the results of the ‘Let’s Talk Rubbish’ consultation and Waste Regulations (TEEP)
3.2 Introduce a subscription garden waste service from June 2016 at an annual fee of £60 p.a.;
3.3 Introduce a weekly food collection service and reduce refuse collections to fortnightly (earliest
implementation date of Autumn 2016);
3.4 Keep a weekly comingled recycling service whilst options to share services and contracts
with neighbouring boroughs are further explored.
