16/09/2021 - Household Waste Recycling Centres: Temporary increase in opening hours ref: 2880    Recommendations Approved

Sheffield’s five Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) are currently operating under increased opening times, with all sites open 7 days a week until 30th September 2021.  On 1st October the sites will change to their normal Winter opening times (9.30am to 3.30pm) and open/closed days, a reduction in opening times of 48 hours per week.


We are proposing to extend the current HWRC 7 day opening for a further month.  This will see all five HWRCs remain open 7 days a week until the end of October 2021, rather than 30th September as per the current agreement. 


The recommendation will increase site availability during October when garden waste is still produced in reasonable volumes and will mitigate against increased site demand associated with the risk of suspensions of the garden waste collection service due to the impact of Covid-19 on the Veolia workforce. 


Decision Maker: Executive Director, Place

Decision published: 20/09/2021

Effective from: 16/09/2021


That the Executive Director of Place:


1.    Approves the recommendation to extend the current HWRC 7 day opening until 31st October 2021.


2.    Approves the Council issuing a notice of change to Veolia to reflect the change of opening hours.

16/09/2021 - Authorisation of the Community Services Manager to Take Decisions on Behalf of the Committee ref: 2873    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: South West Local Area Committee

Made at meeting: 16/09/2021 - South West Local Area Committee

Decision published: 17/09/2021

Effective from: 24/09/2021



The Community Services Manager, submitted a report setting out the mechanism for the Local Area Committee to enable decisions to be taken quickly and to respond to emerging issues by authorising the Community Services Manager to make decisions on expenditure between Committee meetings, subject to certain conditions.




RESOLVED: That the South West Local Area Committee authorises the Community Services Manager to make decisions on expenditure from any budgets allocated to the Local Area Committee provided that:


·       The decision is taken in consultation with the Local Area Committee Chair

·       Spending is in line with any specific purposes of the allocated budget

·       The decision may not approve expenditure of more than £5,000

·       A report detailing the delegated spending decisions taken by the Community Services Manager is presented to the next Local Area Committee meeting.



Reasons for Decision



The proposal to authorise decisions on any budgets allocated to the Committee can be discharged, in part, by the Community Services Manager will ensure the Committees can respond quickly to emerging local issues.




Alternatives Considered and Rejected



All decisions relating to budgets allocated to the Local Area Committee

could be decided at Formal Committee Meetings only. Whilst this approach would ensure the involvement of all members of the committee, it would mean that decisions to allocate spending for emerging and urgent local issues may not be made in a timely fashion.



Any Interest Declared or Dispensation Granted






Reason for Exemption if Public/Press Excluded During Consideration






Respective Director Responsible for Implementation


Executive Director People Services




Relevant Scrutiny and Policy Development Committee If Decision Called In
