Questions of which notice has been given pdf icon PDF 183 KB

Minutes:

Councillor Siddall submitted the following question to the Executive Councillor for Operational Services.

 

“I have had several reports of bins being damaged by our bin crew but not being reported by the crew.  When the customers call they are being told they have to pay for a replacement bin. Can the executive member look at putting a procedure in place for these damaged bin reports to be looked into and where damage has occurred, but not been reported by the crew, a free replacement of the bin could be offered?”

 

Response from Executive Councillor for Operational Services

 

“I shall be speaking to our colleagues at Alliance Environmental Services to ensure that they continue to keep thorough and accurate records of damaged bins. Where there is doubt about the accuracy of such records I shall impress upon them the requirement to provide a replacement at their cost.”
