Proposed by Councillor Paul Millar

Motion: Tackling waste responsibly in East Devon

In order to achieve greater transparency and responsibility for our waste and to be certain that 'recycled' waste is not ‘dumped’ in an unprocessed state in another country, we propose the following motion:

                           

a) that EDDC, in conjunction with Devon County Council and Suez, assess how it might, within the current legal framework, best secure transparency from recycling processors so as to facilitate clear reporting to our residents;

 

b) that EDDC, in conjunction with Devon County Council and Suez assess how it might best report in weight terms as well as percentages, (with the intention of securing greater understanding as to whether the volume of general, food, plastics, metal, glass, textiles and electronic waste is decreasing, as well as percentages increasing);

 

c) that EDDC assess how to encourage public behaviour change by promoting through EDDC’s media presence the message 'refuse, refill, reduce' rather than focusing on 'recycle';

 

d) that a report be prepared on how EDDC can buy or commission products made from recycled materials whenever possible, (also joining with other councils where appropriate to reduce costs, for example for recycling sacks and bins) with a view to encouraging a closed loop circular economy system, the overall intention being to reduce and ultimately eliminate ‘virgin’ plastic entering the system.
