Biffa has signed seven local authority contracts worth £110m.
Arrangements with Isle of Anglesey County Council, Conwy County Borough Council, Stratford-on-Avon District Council, Norwich City Council, East Lothian Council, and Kent County Council are either being rolled over or extended.
It is also continuing to manage household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) for a further two years for Vale of Glamorgan Council after a retendering process.
Biffa municipal development director Pete Dickson, left, said: “Our commitment to high service standards, and to maximising efforts to reduce waste and costs, have been rewarded by these authorities.
“The challenge ahead is to expand recycling even further while controlling costs, and we look forward to fulfilling these councils’ faith in Biffa.”
New arrangements include:
- On Anglesey the contract has been rolled over for seven years. A new service feature will integrate the weekly collections of kerbside-sorted dry recyclables in boxes and food waste in caddies.
- Conwy County Borough Council has agreed a two-year extension of Biffa’s green waste collection contract from 1 December.
- Stratford-on-Avon’s contract extension runs until August 2022. New kerbside collections of small domestic WEEE, household batteries and textiles have been introduced.
- In Norwich an extension to the contract will run until March 2024. Later this year, the current dual stream collections (commingled dry recyclables with separate glass) will change to a fully-commingled service.
- East Lothian Council has rolled over Biffa’s contract for four more years with effect from September.
