David Beaver – Head of Waste & Business Services was in attendance for this item.
1. Miss Carey introduced the report which report asked the cabinet committee to consider and endorse or make recommendations on a proposed decision to enter into a lease for the provision of a new waste transfer station. She said the site mentioned in the report was a good one and would enable KCC to recycle more of the waste collected in the Sevenoaks area. Mr Beaver said that moving to the larger site would enable the authority to move waste up through the hierarchy which would result in commercial savings, enable the processing of trade waste, and have benefits for Sevenoaks District Council who wished to part their fleet of waste collection lorries on the site.
2. RESOLVED to endorse the proposed decision of the Cabinet Member for Environment to enter into a lease for the provision of a new Waste Transfer Station at Dunbrik, Sundridge for up to 30 years, to provide bulking facilities for household waste collected by Sevenoaks District Council.
