Up till now we haven’t written about what happened at the special District Council meeting on December 5th. This was a meeting to discuss new contracts for waste management, street cleansing and grounds maintenance.
Because it involved certain financial information it was held in ‘private and confidential’ and the minutes still aren’t on the council website.
We were encouraged not to write anything until the council had a press launch.
However quite a bit of news came out at a small sub-committee meeting and it’s now in the Echo:
At the moment, the council only recycles bottles, tins and paper, but plans to increase this to include plastics, cardboard, garden and kitchen waste from March.
We think this is very good news but have kept quiet about it till now. But if the Echo are allowed to write this , we think we are as well!
