Waste bin deal stays

WASTE bins in Henley are to continue being emptied by Biffa despite a request for the work

WASTE bins in Henley are to continue being emptied by Biffa despite a request for the work to be taken over by the town council.

Members of the council’s and community committee rejected an appeal to take over control of waste management from South Oxfordshire District Council’s contractor following a complaint from a resident about a problem with bins in Norman Avenue.

Nicci Taylor, the council’s office manager, said: “The resident stated that it takes an age to build a reputation but only a few moments to destroy it and requested that the emptying of the towns litter bins be taken ‘in house’ to ensure that Henley remains a tourist centre.”

The council already empties the bins in parks and amenity areas while Biffa empties the town centre bins daily.

Mayor Lorraine Hillier said Biffa was “doing a good job”.
