With the aim of forcing scrap trading companies to increase the frequency of their waste service, DCLG is now focusing on looking at further alternate options for weekly scrap collections.

A report in a daily mail revealed that nearly 11 local authorities had stopped weekly scrap collections in the previous year 2013. This sudden change leads to significant drop in revenue. That’s why now Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) made an announcement to all the scrap collecting agencies “Not to drop weekly scrap collections” and are looking further for an alternative way to increase the frequency of their waste services.

Communities’ secretary Eric Pickles has stepped up his campaign for weekly household collections by issuing guidance to local authorities. “Mr. Eric Pickles, the Minister of DCLG has been looking at introducing minimum standards for local collections. He also wishes to amend Household Waste Recycling Act 2003 to make it more difficult to do monthly collections and it has to be set out the type of collection that had to be done weekly” reported the spokesperson for DCLG on March 18, 2014.

Mr. Eric Pickles, the Minister of DCLG added, “There are lots of councils who just pretend like they have no alternative for weekly rubbish collections. But I had given the superior power to local scrap dealing authorities to take a decision on whether they want weekly collections or not. It would be reasonable to say, we are looking at further alternative options to increase the frequency of their waste services and thereby suggest weekly collection”.

The “Not to Stop Weekly Scrap Collection” pledge is to increase the pressure on councils which argues to stop weekly residual rubbish scrap collections. Moreover focusing on weekly collections will go a long way for scrap dealers and scrap trading industries.
