Cabinet Member

Councillor Steve Albon

 

 

Relevant Portfolio:

Cabinet Member for Operational Services

 

 

Date of Decision:

18 June 2020

 

 

Subject:

Procurement of 11 new Refuse Collection Freighters

 

Key Decision

Yes

In Forward Plan

Yes

 

Brief summary of matter:

 

The 2020/21 capital programme includes provision for the replacement of a substantial proportion of the council’s refuse vehicle fleet. In accordance with the constitution, this report seeks approval of a key decision to commit £2.2m of the budget allocation for the purchase of 11No. 26 tonne freighters.

 

Decision made:

 

Cabinet approved Option 1 in the Cabinet report, which was to commit £2.2m from this year’s approved capital programme budget on the purchase of 11No. refuse freighters.

 

Reasons for decision:

 

The council operates an in-house waste and recycling service. A comprehensive vehicle replacement programme is necessary in order for the council to meet statutory obligations in terms of the collection of household waste as required by the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The council’s vehicles have a finite life beyond which it is uneconomical to continue to maintain and operate them.

 

Alternatives considered and why rejected:

 

The alternative option not to approve this key decision was rejected as it would ultimately leave the council unable to fulfil statutory obligations with regard to household waste collections.
