Joint bid reaches GMWDA final offer stage

The joint bid between Viridor Waste Management and Laing Roads & Utilities has been selected for best and final offer stage in the race for Greater Manchester’s waste contract.

The Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority (GMWDA) has confirmed that the bid is one of two to be taken forward for the Private Finance Initiative contract to deliver long-term waste management solutions in Greater Manchester.

Viridor managing director Mike Hellings said: “The Viridor/Laing joint venture is pleased to have been selected by GMWDA for the next stage of the procurement process to deliver a ‘world class’ waste management solution.

“We are looking forward to strengthening and enhancing our focused proposals aiming to deliver higher levels of recycling and recovery and best value waste services for Greater Manchester in the years to come.”

Officials at Laing Roads & Utilities, a division of John Laing, were equally pleased with the news. Director Mike Mercer-Deadman said: “This shows how well the partnership between Viridor and Laing is working and we are pleased to see that there is potentially a place for private investment in the waste sector.”
