Highways and Municipal Privacy Notice

Purpose and legal basis

We need your personal information in order to provide you with an assisted collection service.

We have a statutory duty to collect refuse and therefore the legal basis we rely on is article 6(1)(e) of the General Data Protection Regulation which allows us to process personal data when performing a task in the public interest. If you share any health information with us, we will rely on article 9(2)(g) which allows us to process sensitive information if this in the substantial public interest. The relevant legislation which permits this under Schedule 1, Part 2, paragraph 6 of the Data Protection Act 2018 is the Environmental Protection Act 1990.


What we do with it 
The information will not be shared with anyone outside the service.


How long we keep it 

We will keep your details for two years following the initial request.
