Minutes:

Cabinet considered a report received from the Communities, Environment & Highways Select Committee (CEHSC) in relation to Item 12 - Rethinking Waste – Surrey County Council’s Waste Commissioning Strategy.

 

Mr John O’Reilly, Chairman of the CEHSC, presented the report and explained the recommendations to Cabinet.  He highlighted that the select committee were of the opinion that the next waste contract should not last for 25 years and should be for a shorter period.  He was aware that the waste strategy was a work in progress and informed Cabinet that the CEHSC were setting up a Waste Task Group to look at the future in regards to waste and recycling.  He wanted the council to be a vanguard in this area and praised the work undertaken so far under the new Leader and Chief Executive.

 

The Cabinet Member for Waste & Climate Change requested the following change to Recommendation 2 of the CEHSC report which was agreed:

 

‘That the Cabinet Member provide assurances due consideration that the recommendations made by the Waste Task Group in September 2019 and reported to Cabinet in October 2019 are inputted into the development of the new Waste Commissioning Strategy’

She went on to say that many of the recommendations had already been included in the strategy.

 

The Leader thanked Mr O’Reilly for the work of the CEHSC and that the recommendations would be considered in work going forward.
