Decision details

Bristol Waste Company (BWC) – Street Cleansing Village Depots

Decision Maker: Executive Director: Growth and Regeneration

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Reflects the Cabinet Decision of 3 December 2019 not to develop a Street Cleansing Depot as part of the Hartcliffe Way Reuse and Recycling Centre Facility and for the Council to identify the future location of the Street Cleansing Depot facilities as part of wider review of depot provision. The value of funding required to deliver the selected Village Depot model was below the Key Decision Threshold and therefore has been made via an officer executive decision rather than requiring a return to Cabinet.


Contribution of capital costs for the development of Village Depot facilities for BWC’s Street Cleansing Services.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - The Village Depot approach was identified with BWC as the most advantageous approach, allowing Street Cleansing Services depot provision to be distributed across different locations within the City, bringing the services closer to the neighbourhoods they are delivered within. As a Teckal subsidiary company of the Council, BCC can award a contract to BWC directly, without the requirement to consider other procurement options.
