Residents’ views about the waste collection and recycling service will be discussed by councillors at a meeting next Thursday.

Chair of Calderdale Council’s economy and environment scrutiny panel, Councillor Scott Benton said: “The Council’s current waste collection contract with SITA UK ends in 2015 and this scrutiny meeting gives all residents who use this important service the opportunity to let the council know their views on the service delivery and also what aspects of the service you feel could and/or should be improved.”

Deputy chair Coun James Baker said: “The panel is particularly keen to hear residents’ views on their current understanding of the recycling system and how we can encourage residents to recycle more in the future.”

The meeting will be held at 6pm on Thursday, August 8, at Halifax Town Hall. Coun Benton said they looked forward to hearing from people.
