Labour Councillors are urging all residents of Brighton & Hove to make sure they have their say on the use of commercials bins before the consultation closes on Sunday 31 March.
The plan would involve introducing ‘Time-banded collections’ in ‘T-Zones’. This would mean in certain areas of the city; businesses would only be allowed to have their bins or waste on the highway between certain times.
Labour feel strongly about waste collection issues and understand the problems they can bring. Whilst in administration, we achieved the highest recycling rate in the history of the council and we were seeking to collect a greater range of plastics for reprocessing, end the use of single use plastics in the city and introduce a citywide food waste collection and composting service following a trial. We are still looking to progress this work from opposition.
We know that the council has been receiving a lot of complaints from residents on this issue, and Labour want to ensure that the voices of as many residents as possible are included in this consultation.
