Dear Sir/Madam,

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST X04-2447

 

We refer to your email dated 15 August 2020 which contained a request for
information as set out in italics below.  Following consideration of your
request, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I respond
to each point as follows:

 

Under the Freedom Of Information Act I would like to request the following
data:

 

-       The number of missed bin collections in 2018, 2019 and 2020 

 

The information you have requested is recorded in financial years and not
calendar years.  The figures below are based on the waste contractor’s
reported average daily performance. 

 

2018/19         -           2,028

2019/20         -           1,638

 

-       How many extra bin lorries had to be sent out to pick up bins
missed during their routine collections in 2018, 2019, 2020 

 

The waste contractor provides one additional  vehicle to collect missed
collections.

 

-       The additional costs to the council resulting from missed bin
collections in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

 

No additional costs as there is provision within the contract.  

 

-       The average weekly and annual costs to the council of collecting
domestic waste, as in the regular landfill waste, food waste and recycling
created by homes which is collected by the council.

 

The annual collection contract costs approximately £6 million which
equates to £115,385 per week but this varies depending on service users.

 

I hope this response satisfies your request. If you are dissatisfied with
the handling of the request, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 you
have the right to request a review of the Council’s response to your
request for information.  If you wish to request a review, please write to
the below address or email [1][Bridgend County Borough Council request email] .  Following ICO
guidance, a request for a review must be made within 2 months of a
response being received.
