Abitibi and North Warwickshire extend contract

Abitibi-Consolidated has announced the extension of its contract with North Warwickshire Borough Council (NWBC) by a further five years.

After a competitive tender, the company which has its UK offices at Ellesmere Port was given responsibility for services in the northernmost borough of Warwickshire.

The deal will deliver a multi-materials kerbside recycling service with over 23,000 properties covered by a fortnightly bag and box service for newspapers, magazines, catalogues, Yellow Pages and other directories, direct mail, glass, cans and textiles.

NWBC Streetscape assistant director Richard Dobbs said: “Warwickshire has an aspirational recycling rate across the county of 40-45% by 2010. Within North Warwickshire, where we’re well ahead of current Government targets, we already enjoy around 30% and are looking forward, over the next five years, to working closely with our partners at Abitibi-Consolidated Recycling Europe to build on this by improving and expanding the service to local householders.”

The relationship between NWBC and the company goes back to 1989, when Abitibi-Consolidated Recycling Europe, then Cheshire Recycling, first provided paper banks to the borough council.
