Great Yarmouth Borough Council to increase bulk waste collection charges
At the Environment Committee Meeting held on Thursday 18th July Labour Members expressed their opposition to increasing the Bulky Waste Service Charges from September 1st 2018.
The proposed increases were as follows:
- 1 Item: Current Charge £13.00
Proposed increase of £9.00 to £22.00
- 2-3 Items: Current Charge £18.50
Proposed increase of £3.50 to £22.00
- 4 Items: Current Charge £31.50
Proposed increase of £6.50 to £38.00
- 5-6 Items: Current Charge £37.00
Proposed increase of £1.00 to £38.00
Labour Cllr Trevor Wainwright said this was a short-sighted decision as it would increase fly-tipping in the Borough.
The final decision was deferred until further information was provided on income.
