Charges at the Household Waste and Recycling Centre pdf icon PDF 136 KB

Purpose.

The purpose of this report is to seek approval from the Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change to make two changes to policies used at the Household Waste and Recycling Centre (HWRCs) at Port Solent. These are to:

 

a)    Increase the price of a bag of soil and rubble (incl. stonework, clay, bricks, concrete blocks, paving slabs, tiles, ceramic bathroom units) and individual ceramic items, such as a toilet pan, by 50p to reflect the increased cost of disposing of this material and to keep charging in line with the rest of the HWRCs operated by Hampshire County Council (HCC) and Southampton City Council (SCC).

 

b)    Increase the price point at which individual items require labelling from £5 to £10 to reflect the change in the value of goods that has occurred over time. (This will not change the value of the item only the requirement for it to be labelled.)

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

That the Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change approves an increase in the charge to users for a bag of soil and rubble or other individual ceramic items disposed of at a Household Waste Recycling Centre by 50p to £3.00 to reflect the increase in costs associated with management and disposal of this material and to ensure that charging is kept in line with HCC and SCC HWRC sites which are all managed under the same contract. (For current charges see appendix 1)

 

That the Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change approves a change to the price point at which an item available to be sold for reuse at a Household Waste Recycling Centre should be individually labelled from £5 to £10 to reflect the general increase in the value of goods.

 

The Director for Housing, Neighbourhood and Building Services is given the delegated authority, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change to agree future changes to the charges for non-household wastes at the Household Waste Recycling Centres to ensure that the City Council can respond rapidly - in partnership with Hampshire County and Southampton City Council to market changes and in keeping with contract timescales and to avoid additional cost burdens associated with any delays.
