21 November 2019
Green City Councillor Paul Stubbins proposed to the full meeting of the City Council on 13 November that action should be taken to ensure the proportion of household waste that is recycled is increased and that residual waste (i.e. that which can't be recycled) is decreased. This would be achieved by Lancaster City Council working with residents to raise awareness and by consulting widely on how to make this happen.
Paul's motion was passed unanimously.
The background is that Lancaster is failing to hit its current recycling target of 45% and is below the average for Lancashire. The City Council is to set itself a higher target of 50% of waste to be recycled by 2020, so this motion pushes it higher up the agenda.
