RESOLVED that the Portfolio Holder:
i. Receives the report
ii. Approves the garden waste pricing structure for 2020/21, specifically:
a. An annual charge of £38 per licensed bin or £38 per property for a sack collection.
b. A £20 administration charge for a new brown bin.
c. A £20 charge for seven rolls of 10 garden waste sacks if required
iii. Approves the removal of the credit card style licence to be replaced with a bin sticker.
Garden waste collection is a non-statutory service funded through licence subscriptions and recycling credits. North Yorkshire County Council has significantly reduced its financial support for the scheme through a reduction in the payment of recycling credits. In order to protect the service and ensure its continued provision consideration must be given to increase the subscription (opt-in) charge to deliver a balanced budget.
