Indicative Timing: 5 minutes

Minutes:

Paul Brockwell, Locality Lead Officer, gave a presentation on the Neighbourhood Grant application process. He informed the meeting that there was £5000 left to be granted as Neighbourhood Grants.

 

Residents Richard Johnson and Elizabeth Bennett asked questions about fly-tipping, and Paul Brockwell confirmed that it could be possible for the issue to be covered by a Neighbourhood Grant, should a community group apply for materials to assist them with a litter picking project, however it would depend on the context of the application. Scott Edgell (General Manager for the South London Waste Partnership - Veolia Environmental Services UK) confirmed that Veolia would support the proposal and offered to speak with Mr Johnson following the meeting. Councillor Bourne added that they were aware of issues surrounding the shops in Stonecot Ward and had taken some measures to prevent further instances, and were considering installing signs to warn culprits of CCTV.

Update on the South London Waste Partnership

A representative from Veolia to provide an update on the current waste service performance.

 

Indicative Timing: 60 minutes

Minutes:

Mark Dalzell (Head of Neighbourhood Services) and Scott Edgell (General Manager for the South London Waste Partnership - Veolia Environmental Services UK) attended to provide an update on the current waste service performance. The Chair asked for maps to be circulated on the tables for residents to mark where there were issues with the waste service.

 

Residents, Community Representatives, and Councillors raised concerns about missed collections, reporting missed collections, bins having not been received at the start of the contract, textile collections, commercial waste, neighbours with contaminated bins, advice on what refuse goes in what bin, mess left after collections, communal bin stores, the volume of each bin versus the refuse they are intended for, grease and cooking fat waste, fluorescent tubes from lighting, purchase of food waste bags, and individual issues/issues on specific roads. The key points that emerged from the responses were that Veolia do collect textiles, that only some companies use Veolia and some dispose of their waste privately, that they intended to address contamination issues via the Education and Enforcement team, that fluorescent tubes must go to household reuse and recycling centres (RRCs), that food waste caddies could be lined with paper or not lined at all, that residents requiring more bins could make a request, and that Veolia had commissioned stickers, hangers and other materials to mark where refuse is not taken and assist residents and staff with ensuring a smooth collection.

 

Where there were individual issues and issues in specific locations, Scott Edgell confirmed that he would be happy to take the details and ensure that they are investigated. Councillor Bourne confirmed that she would raise concerns about the recycling bins at Sainsbury’s with their management.
