Environment Select

Last Tuesday evening saw a meeting of the Environment Select Committee.

Items up for discussion included an update on the Binnovation scheme
including details on some forthcoming improvements to some of the recycling
sites within Glossopdale, reports on partnership working, prescribed
processes, the food service plan, arrangements for a forthcoming tour and

with concerns that some of the issues they can deal with at a low level now,
they may not be able to deal with in the same way with this additional
