Thank you for your request for information, this has now been processed and the information that we hold is enclosed.

There are no plans to include garden and food waste

We have had over 15 enquires and managed to add bins/provide bins to 6 schools so far with a further 3 waiting until after the school holidays to receive their bins.

We will be extending this offer to all schools in EHDC soon and as such have provided a further 2 schools outside of Bishops Stortford and Sawbridgeworth with bins. We have yet to complete a full review of this project so far but we will be doing this shortly so the numbers above may change.


If you have any queries or complaint about the processing of your request please do not hesitate to contact me.
