Update on the Use of Single Use Plastics (00.03.36)
To receive a verbal update from the Director of Operations on the reduction in the use of Single Use Plastics.
The Committee received and NOTED a verbal report providing an update from the Director of Operations on the reduction in use of Single Use Plastics (SUP).
The Director of Operations explained that the motion had seen a slight amendment at Full Council on 29th August which was supported by Members.
He explained that the Public Health Officer would be the single point of contact for the project to reduce the amount of SUP’s and he would be working alongside other Officers to achieve the spirit of the Motion. He stated that the project would include working with suppliers to source alternative arrangements for products that the Council required but he had hoped to make some changes quickly like stopping the ordering of plastic cups in Phoenix House and replacing them with alternatives.
Members were pleased that the Motion had been accepted at Full Council and were looking forward to progress being made.
It was RESOLVED that Officers provide a detailed report to the March 2019 meeting of the PDG which explained the progress to date.
