A Conservative Notice of Motion, brought before a meeting of Full Council in City Chambers on Thursday 19th April 2018, calls for Cityclean to provide an affordable and suitable commercial recycling service for small businesses and sole traders.
At present the provision for small businesses and sole traders who work from home, or produce very small quantities of recyclable waste, is woefully inadequate.
Affordable & Suitable
In City Chambers Cllr. Tony Janio said “Our Notice of Motion is very simple – it requests that the Chair of The Environment, Transport & Sustainability committee presents a report at their next meeting, detailing how Cityclean could provide an affordable and suitable commercial recycling service, for small businesses and sole traders who operate from home or produce very small quantities of recyclable waste.
Our City is Languishing in Stasis
“…there are many other policies across the council that aren’t working – our city is languishing in stasis – waiting for the next local elections as the moderate Labour Councillors…are paralysed from a fear of deselection from a Momentum backed hard left.
Show Some Backbone
“…I am just asking the current Labour Administration to show some backbone and agree to review the Small Business Waste policy now. Sadly I expect this will not happen in the near future.”
The Conservative Notice of Motion was Proposed by: Cllr. Tony Janio (facebook) and Seconded by: Cllr. Lee Wares (facebook). In City Chambers the Motion was passed – but, unfortunately, 19 Labour Councillors voted against small businesses and sole traders.
