Food waste collections to be scrapped
1:20pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
SEPARATE food waste collections are set to be stopped.
Plans to scrap the scheme from January 10, 2014 were given approval at a meeting of Wychavon District Council on Tuesday, September 24.
The decision follows resident feedback that showed 88 per cent of those asked picked it as the top way to save money.
Figures also showed that less than 20 per cent of residents used the £550,000 a year scheme.
The consultation, which over 1,700 Wychavon residents took the time to complete, asked people to rank the services that meant most to them and the ones they'd be prepared to lose, as the council battles to save £4 million over four years.
Information will be given to residents on alternative ways to deal with their food waste.
