Figures for the Councils survey into residents preferences for waste collection in the Severus Street and School Street areas have now been published.
The options were:
1. Present black bags at the front of their property (with a storage bin available on request)
2. Present a wheeled bin at the front of their property (NB. houses with forecourts)
3. Keep a wheeled bin on their property for presenting at a central collection point. Residents would have to wheel the bin to the collection point in the morning and return it when it had been emptied. Bins would have to be stored in back yards. Help would be available to move the bins for people with disabilities.
The closing date for the consultation was 23rd August. The leaflet sent to residents said that if they did not respond then the Council would assume they were happy with the current arrangements.
The breakdown of responses for each street was as follows:
Severus Street—11 properties were sent leaflets and the Council received 5 responses (45.45%). Of these responses, 2 residents chose option 1, none chose option 2 and 3 chose option 3
