Glasgow waste treatment contract narrows to two bidders

Glasgow city council has shortlisted two bidders for the final stage of its residual waste treatment contract.

Following the evaluation of detailed solutions offered by Glasgow Renewables, 3SE, Biffa and Viridor, the authority has decided to invite 3SE and Viridor to the final stage of procurement.

Currently no details of the technology in the bids have been made public by Glasgow city council, but it is known that the contract will treat between 150,000 and 200,000 tonnes of waste per annum.

Glasgow city council executive member for land and environmental services, councillor Jim Coleman, said: “We have always been clear that the status quo is not an option - we need to protect the city financially, and ensure Glasgow complies with Scotland’s Zero Waste Plan.”

The preferred bidder is expected to be appointed in the spring.
