(c) flatten cardboard.

Service users with limited access or storage for wheeled bins are provided with single use clear plastic sacks for the storage and collection of recycling waste.

The Authority shall reserve the right to vary Schedule 1 of the T&Cs (the Specification) at any time during the Term to allow a Change (in accordance with the Change Control Procedure) to amend the services from a single stream recyclables collection to a multi-stream recyclables collection (‘the Collections Change’). This variation would be proposed and implemented by the Authority where process efficiencies, cost savings, environmentally friendly practices and/or general public benefits are identified and justified, or to comply with legislation.
