Attended the Council’s Environment Policy Panel meeting as an observer. As a member of the Council’s Household Waste Collection Task and Finish Panel I was interested in two reports, one on a chargeable garden waste collection and a second on a commercial waste and recycling scheme. Both will go forward for consideration by the Council’s Executive Committee. It is hoped that the pilot garden waste collection scheme which has been operating in Needham Market and Stowmarket will be extended in April 2008 from 600 or so houses to all those that wish to participate across the District. It will provide a fortnightly collection and all the garden waste will be composted at County Mulch in Creeting St Mary.
