Decision details

Closure of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Reuse Facility - NOV18/CMDN/56

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Waste and Street Scene

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Cabinet Member agreed:


a)    In line with the proposed savings for the MTFS 2018 – 19 to close the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) reuse facility on 31 December 2018 currently operated by Amey Limited in fulfilment of the Council’s service agreement with Enterprise managed Services Limited.


b)    To approve the variation of the services agreement with Enterprise Managed Services Limited to reflect the closure.


Reasons for the decision:

7.1      After exploring all options with charities to take over the current facility as is, it was found this would not be feasible. As this is a non statutory service and to meet the budget requirements of the MTFS 2018-19 it is recommended to close the WEEE reuse facility.


Electrical goods will still be recycled correctly under the WEEE regulations and PCAS will  continue to provide white goods as and when required.

Alternative options considered:

8.1      Do nothing – to continue to operate the WEEE facility costs the Council £39,000 per annum.


8.2      Source an alternative provider - this has been explored but no suitable replacement provider was found.
