Agenda item

Project to increase recycling on Middlesex Street estate

Report of the Director of the Built Environment.


The Committee received a report of the Director of the Built Environment which updated Members on improving recycling on Middlesex Street estate. This included incentivising residents to increase their recycling performance. 


A Member asked whether officers had information as to why the recycling performance at Middlesex Street estate was not better and queried whether incentivising people was the best method. In response, the Director of the Built Environment explained that some residents on the estate did recycle but not all and it was hoped that incentivising would assist in helping people buy into recycling in the long term, particularly amongst young people who could encourage their parents.


RESOLVED - That the Committee note the report.
