My composting motion to the full meeting of East Riding of Yorkshire Council was today approved by a unanimous decision. I would like to thank my fellow Councillors from all parties for their support.
I would also like to acknowledge the help of ERYC officers for their help and guidance in bringing this motion forward.
Hopefully the review of the composting industry will now take place in the early part of next year.
But today was only the beginning of the process to ensure that the Composting Industry is rigorously monitored and the regulation of the processes, especially the range of material composted, the geographic origin, the storage, and the days and methods of spreading are brought out into the open, that the composters conform to ALL regulations, and that the rights of local residents are paramount.
