tightening of restrictions around international waste and queried whether this
would have a potential impact on the Council. Officers explained that we
currently disperse of all of our waste within the UK and therefore would not
incur any international charges.
Discussions took place around
the Compliments and complaints element of the report. Members were firstly
pleased to see an increase in compliments received in 21/22. However, members
questioned an inaccuracy within the report around the compliment figures for
2020/21. Members also raised their disappointment in the recording of the

breakdown of all figures in the quality assurance report that would be brought
to a future meeting of Street scene and Engineering.

educating further on increasing recycling. Officers highlighted to members
