Dear Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council,

GUIDANCE FOR HOUSEHOLD WASTE COLLECTIONS IN BOURNEMOUTH APRIL 2019 available from https://www.bournemouth.gov.uk/binsrecyc... states that: "Compositional analysis suggests that less than 25% of waste placed in the average Bournemouth refuse bin needs to be disposed of there; instead the majority of waste can be separated for collection in the Big Bin recycling bin (30%), food waste (38%) or garden waste (11%) collection
services."

Could you please provide me with an electronic copy of this compositional analysis.

Yours faithfully,

Shlomo Dowen

Dear Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council,

I note that your message of 10th October 2019 set out how "Your enquiry has been received and we will respond as soon as possible."

It has now been more than 20 working days since I received that acknowledgement, and I have yet to receive the requested environmental information.

As the compositional analysis, an electronic copy of which I requested, has been available to the Council at least since April, as it is referred to in the April 2019 GUIDANCE FOR HOUSEHOLD WASTE COLLECTIONS IN BOURNEMOUTH, I do not understand why my simple request could not be fulfilled more promptly.

I believe it is fair to classify my request as one that falls within the Environmental Information Regulations, and as you will be aware, EIR Regulation 5 requires a public authority that holds environmental information to make it available on request, as soon as possible and no later than 20 working days after the date of receipt of the request.

I trust you will now release the requested information, and that there will be no need to trigger an Internal Review of a decision to withhold that information. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Yours faithfully,
Shlomo Dowen

Dear Ms Downen,

 

Environmental Information Regulations Request

 

I am writing to advise you that the time limit for responding to your

2004, which we received on 10^th October 2019, needs to be extended.

 

The Regulations allow us 20 working days to respond to your request from
the date of its receipt. However, it is occasionally necessary to extend
the 20 working day time limit for issuing a response. In this case, I
regret that we must extend the time limit for responding by 20 days.

 

I hope to let you have a response by 6^th December 2019, and will keep you
informed of any further delay.

 

If you are dissatisfied with this response you can ask for an internal
review. The purpose of an internal review is to assess how your Freedom of
Information request was handled in the first instance and to determine
whether the original response provided met with the requirements of the
legislation. You can request an internal review by email to BCP Council
Enquiries [1][email address]. You should make a
review request within 40 working days of this response.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the Council’s review you have
the right to refer the matter to the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Yours sincerely
