Decision details

Provision of Waste Weekends

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes




That the Cabinet agree to extend the current contract with Powerday PLC for the provision of ‘Waste Weekends’ at Tavistock Road, West Drayton to the London Borough of Hillingdon for a two-year period from January 2023 to December 2024 and at the estimated cost of £2,165k for the period.


Reasons for decision


The Cabinet Member for Residents’ Services introduced the report, which Cabinet agreed, to continue the popular waste weekend service at Tavistock Road, West Drayton and ensure residents living in the south of the Borough to continue to have easy access to a local site for the disposal of bulky waste and recycling.


Alternative options considered and rejected


Cabinet could have undertaken a competitive tender or closed the service, but discounted these due to the lack of available sites and the negative impact on both residents and the environment.
