1. In the last financial year 2016/17 how many incidents did your authority record where refuse collectors were assaulted by members of the public while carrying out council duties? Please give a brief description ofthe circumstances of the incident.
NOTE: By refuse collectors I mean all employees whose main duties are involved in the collection of rubbish (all types) from homes and businesses with your authority.
NOTE: If the refuse collection duties are carried out by a third party company hired by the council the information is still HELD by the council, because it is information held on your behalf.
Following your request detailed below I can confirm that Brentwood Borough Council has had no reports of physical assaults on RCV staff for the financial year of 2016/17.
