We the undersigned petition Surrey County Council to Stop the intended charge for disposing of wood & bricks/concrete at community recycling centres. More details

Petition update 2 from the council, 27 September 2019

Dear all,

Please find below the Cabinet response to this petition:

"It is clear that our community recycling centres are valued by our residents and I would like to thank members of the public for highlighting the matters set out in the three petitions that have been presented.

Surrey County Council’s Cabinet will discuss and agree any future changes to the community recycling centre service at their meeting on 29 October 2019. In coming to a decision, Cabinet will take into account the findings of the Waste Task Group, reported to the Communities, Highways and Environment Select Committee on 19 September 2019 as well as the representations set out in the petitions.

With regard to the specific matters raised in the petitions then I would highlight the fact that the Waste Task Group has recommended that all of our community recycling centres remain open. I would also point out that the evidence to date has shown that there has been a reduction in the total amount of residual waste that we have had to deal with since we introduced recycling-only centres and there is no evidence that there has been a corresponding increase in fly-tipping tonnages collected by district and borough councils. I would also add that should Cabinet decide to not implement charges for construction wood in October, then we would look to re-introduce containers for wood on the recycling-only sites.

The Waste Task Group’s recommendation on charges will be considered by Cabinet in October, however I would also point out that our charges for rubble and soil have remained the same at £4 per bag since they were introduced in September 2016 and the Council is not currently charging for construction wood waste. The Council will consider whether or not to implement such a charge when it meets in October.

Mr Mike Goodman
Cabinet Member for Environment and Waste
24 September 2019"

More details from petition creator

We believe that £4 per small bag of wood or bricks/paving slabs etc to be recycled is too high and will lead to an increase of illegal fly-tipping on private and public land. There will also be an increase in the burning of toxic "treated" wood by members of the public.
