Dear Tower Hamlets Borough Council,

The council has announced additional expenditure for waste services.

How many refuse trucks does the council currently operate?

How many frontline operators are currently employed by waste services? Please break this number down into drivers, sweepers and loaders?

How many new vehicles do the council propose purchasing and will they all be zero emission?

Please identify how the 72 new operatives will be employed as either driver, sweepers or loaders? The breakdown.
