Minutes:

Mrs Plant introduced the report and Mrs Huggett was present.

 

Members gave their support to the proposal and commented on how it would bring in revenue for the council.

 

Mrs Huggett responded to members questions. She explained that the unit charge for cleaning bins would be roughly £10 for a commercial bin and £4.50 for a residential bin however, packages would be available.
