Tipping Away Payments (Waste) pdf icon PDF 93 KB

Report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport


15.1     The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.




15.2     The Lead Member RESOLVED to (1) approve the County Council entering into arrangements with Eastbourne Borough Council relating to the tipping of waste outside the borough, as detailed in the report; and


(2) delegate authority to the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport to agree the terms of the proposed tipping away agreement with Eastbourne Borough Council as well as any other District and Borough Council within East Sussex where there is a statutory basis for doing so, and to take all other actions necessary in relation to such agreements and arrangements including variations or termination thereof.




15.3     Tipping away payments apply when the County Council, acting as the Waste Disposal Authority  is unable to provide the District and Borough Councils (Waste Collection Authorities)  with a suitable location to tip waste within a reasonable distance of the boundary of their area.


15.4     Whilst it is not envisaged that the County Council will enter into other tipping away agreements in the near future, it is recommended that the delegated authority covers agreements with all WCAs in East Sussex, including any revised terms or the termination of such agreements. This will ensure that that tipping away payments can be revised to cover future eventualities, such as unavailability of facilities or changes to collection services and contractors.
