Scrutiny meeting extends review of Cheltenham waste collection provider UBICO
A MEETING of the scrutiny committee has extended a review of refuse service provider UBICO by eight months.
Councillors questioning the efficiency of the service - which was set up by Cheltenham Council last April to help reduce the amount of residual waste going to landfill - hope to have a clearer understanding of its effectiveness by September.
Questions were raised about the service on Monday night after rubbish on a number of roads in the borough were left unattended during heavy snowfall in January - despite some streets having already been cleared.
But councillors have agreed to give it more time to "tie up loose ends" that may prove the service's worth.
