Dear Mr Hagon

 

I am now able to respond to your Freedom of Information request logged on
17th August under reference 344016.

 

1/

Please could I request a week by week breakdown of the tonnage collected
from kirbside residential properties in the Colchester Borough, broken
down by food, glass, tin, garden, clothing, plastics, paper/card and
landfill (black sack).

Could you please report these figures for the past 24 months and include
the number of properties collected from each week.

 

Please see the attached spreadsheet which gives tonnages collected to the
end of July 2017.  

 

At the end of March 2017 the Valuation Office Agency recorded 80,053 homes
in the Borough.  All are provided with a weekly food waste collection and
general waste and recycling collections on an alternating fortnightly
schedule.

2/

Please could you give a week by week total labour cost for staff who are
paid to collect kirbside waste  from residential properties in the
Colchester Borough.

 

Could you please report these figures for the past 24 months by directly
employed CBC staff and by temporary agency staff.

 

Please see the attached spreadsheet.

 

3/

Please could you give a week by week total fuel usage in litres used by
waste collection vehicles for the purpose of residential kirbside waste
collections in the Colchester Borough.

The attached spreadsheet shows fuel usage figures.   The week ending date

transport’ shows the emissions generated by the whole fleet, inclusive of
waste collection vehicles and vehicles servicing streets, parks, Helpline,
museums, parking and car parks.

vehicles were:

 

2015/16: 86

Dear Mr Hagon

I am now able to respond to your Freedom of information request logged on 22nd January under reference 347995.

Please could you update the data requested, in the same format, up to the end of 2017.

Could you please report these figures for the past 24 months and include the number of properties collected from each week.

Please see the attached spreadsheet which gives tonnages collected from July to December 2017.
Weekly figures are not held, monthly figures have therefore been provided.
Verified information is not held in a weekly format nor do the Council report nationally in this format. For a period before, during and after the implementation of the new collection service, unverified figures were recorded weekly as part of our internal data collection. This was a temporary measure only and weekly figures are no longer recorded or held as such.

At the end of March 2017 the Valuation Office Agency recorded 80,053 homes in the Borough. This is still the current published figure. All are provided with a weekly food waste collection and general waste and recycling collections on an alternating fortnightly schedule.

2/
Please could you give a week by week total labour cost for staff who are paid to collect kirbside waste from residential properties in the Colchester Borough.
