Cambridgeshire and Peterborough partner with AmeyCespa

AmeyCespa has won a £25m contract to process recyclable materials from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Waste Partnership, a move that the company said consolidates its activities in the region.

As part of the five-year agreement, AmeyCespa will process the waste at its materials recycling facility (MRF) in Waterbeach. The MRF is able to process up to 60,000 tonnes of materials a year.

The company will sell the sorted materials, as well as transporting it through its network of transfer stations.

AmeyCespa said the contract “strengthened its presence in the region and its position in the waste market”. The company also provides waste management services to Cambridgeshire County Council and Northamptonshire County Council.

The agreement includes all six district councils in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

The contract with Peterborough City Council began in September, while agreements with Fenland District, Huntingdonshire District and Cambridge City Councils started in mid-November.

The contracts with South Cambridgeshire and East Cambridgeshire District Councils start in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

Paul Greenwell, managing director of AmeyCespa, said: “We are delighted that the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Waste Partnership has chosen AmeyCespa to process the county’s household recyclables. We are able to provide a local solution for processing this waste, using state-of-the-art technology.

“We look forward to drawing on our existing waste contracts and local expertise to support the partnership in increasing recycling rates and reducing waste across the county.”
