46.1     The Committee considered a report by the Director of Law and Assurance (copy appended to the signed minutes) which proposed that a joint committee be established with Mid Sussex District Council to implement joint work on recycling projects.


46.2     The report was introduced by the Director of Law and Assurance, who advised that discussions were underway with a number of councils, and Mid Sussex District Council had come forward with a proposal for a project which meant that joint arrangements need to be in place as soon as possible. Other arrangements could be agreed with other councils at a later date.
