REASONS FOR DECISION

 

to use the evaluation and lessons learned from the Big Ashfield Spring Clean to inform the most effective way forward for 2019 and future years.

 

ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS CONSIDERED AND REASONS FOR REJECTION

 

1.    Repeat the Big Ashfield Spring Clean campaign in its current format – This option was not recommended as it would not take into account the learning points from the Big Ashfield Spring Clean 2018.

 

2.     Community led spring clean campaign with free bulky waste collections – This option was not recommended as while here is a recognition that there are pockets of active volunteers and groups in Ashfield there is no consistent approach districtwide.
