Decision details

Hire of x6 26 tonne refuse collection vehicles up to January 2021

Decision Maker: Director of Operations

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Council’s fleet of refuse collection vehicles (RCVs) is aging and increasingly unreliable, with the majority being more than 8 years old now. The original lease on them has expired and so they are working beyond their original life expectancy. Vehicle Workshops find it increasingly difficult to ensure that the Waste Management service has a sufficient number of vehicles available every day in order to operate a full service.
