Trial for three- week bin col­lec­tions cy­cle

The Scotsman - - AROUND SCOTLAND -

Aberdeen res­i­dents are fac­ing a con­tro­ver­sial new three-weekly kerb­side waste col­lec­tion ser­vice.

Coun­cil­lors are ex­pected to rub­ber- stamp the op­tion af­ter the lo­cal au­thor­ity failed in its bid to se­cure fund­ing for a wider re­cy­cling cam­paign.

Whilst most of the coun­cil’s waste strat­egy is self­fund­ing, the im­ple­men­ta­tion costs of a new £ 4.27 mil­lion kerb­side col­lec­tion ser­vice was mainly due to be funded by Zero Waste Scot­land ( ZWS).

But in a last- gasp de­ci­sion ZWS said it was un­able to fund any ser­vice changes for coun­cils.
