Waste team pro­vides na­tional men­tors

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

MEM­BERS of Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil’s waste team have been cho­sen to share their knowl­edge and ex­per­tise with other coun­cils.

Mick Robb, sec­tion head for waste, and Richard Pearn, pro­gramme man­ager for waste in­fra­struc­ture, were se­lected to be among 20 men­tors na­tion­wide for the Waste Im­prove­ment Net­work (WIN).

The aim of the net­work is to help coun­cils be­come more ef­fi­cient and im­prove their waste col­lec­tion and re­cy­cling ser­vices.

Over the next 12 months they will have five days to pro­vide work­shops for other lo­cal coun­cils.

Councillor Matthew Lee, deputy leader of the city coun­cil, said: “This is a great achieve­ment for Mick and Richard and also demon­strates the high es­teem in which the coun­cil is held by other lo­cal au­thor­i­ties.

“It is a great op­por­tu­nity for us to share best prac­tice with col­leagues and to work to­gether to im­prove the ser­vices pro­vided to lo­cal res­i­dents.”

Mr Robb said: “Be­ing ac­cepted by WIN as a men­tor to other lo­cal au­thor­i­ties on waste re­lated mat­ters is a great hon­our for me per­son­ally. It also un­der­lines the pos­i­tive im­age of Peter­bor­ough on a na­tional stage in terms of our waste and re­cy­cling ex­per­tise.”
