Jason Prentis was welcomed to the meeting.
Question of underground bins was discussed. Some have been installed on estates, with success. Jason indicated that Albert Square would not be a suitable place; already enough going on underground for utilities in the area; cost would be high and residents would need to fund them. Jason was asked to re-consider; would a feasibility study be possible.
Jason will investigate the following:
- Replacement bins
- Letters to residents outlining waste disposal options
- Frequency of current collection from Eurobins
- Other Council workers (street cleaners etc) using bins inappropriately.
Jason left the meeting at this stage; he was thanked for coming along and talking to us.
