Help make East Cambs Cleaner! Consultation-Public Space Protection Order for Dog Fouling

The Domestic Team at ECDC have proposed a Public Space Protection Order to cover the whole of East Cambridgeshire District with regards to Dog Fouling.

Dog fouling is an environmental crime. It is a health hazard and a nuisance. The ECDC Domestic team want to crack down on owners who do not pick up after their dogs. They want to get the message out of zero tolerance to keep the district clean.

Provision of Bring Banks Sites In East Cambridgeshire

With the support from residents circa 56% of household waste in East Cambridgeshire is being recycled. This is a significant success and the Council appreciates the commitment and support of residents to attaining this high level of recycling. This has been largely achieved following the introduction of the kerbside blue bin service for recyclates but there has also been a resultant and significant decline in the level of recyclates being collected in bring banks, with a fall in annual tonnage collected from 747 tonnes in 2013/14 to 217 tonnes in 2016/17 (70.1% reduction).

This has occurred at time when the market for recycled materials has experienced a significant downturn in respect to the income that is obtained from the sale of recyclates once they have been processed ready for re-use. The impact locally is that the costs for the Council to have recyclates processed has gone up. ECDC has also been advised by two of the three contractors that provided the bring bank site service that they do not wish to renew their contracts (the glass and paper processing companies) because they cannot make a profit from providing the service.

In this context it is important that ECDC reviews all recycling activities to ensure they are delivering high levels of recyclates against the costs of providing the services. For example, to simply continue with the current bring bank service that is now realising significantly less recyclates, is based on soft market testing likely to cost the Council a further £20,000 per annum which is new money for the Council to have to find when budgets are already stretched.
Therefore, ECDC are committed to consult on the future of bring banks site with residents and all interested parties based on the following future options for the service. In all options the textile recycling banks would be retained because textile recycling is not part of the kerbside collection service for recyclates:
ECDC would therefore ask for your input into this process, please click here to complete the survey.
