Kier wins multi-council contract

Kier Services has won a ten-year contract to deliver waste and recycling collections, street cleansing and beach cleaning for four councils.

Eastbourne and Hastings borough councils and Rother and Wealden district councils, which comprise the East Sussex Joint Waste Partnership, expect to save an estimated £30m over the next decade.

The £12m per annum contract will have an optional ten-year extension and also requires Kier to manage and market collected dry recycling.

There will be a phased start to the four councils’ services, with Eastbourne and Wealden beginning in April 2013, followed by Hastings in July 2013 and Rother in April 2014.

East Sussex County Council, as the waste disposal authority, has also agreed to join the scheme.

“We are delighted to have been selected by the partnership in what was a very competitive bidding process,” said Nicola Peake, managing director of Kier’s environmental business.

“Our overall vision is to unify the provision of services across the partnership area to provide best value for residents and a truly integrated environmental service which meets and surpasses the aims and aspirations of the partnership, residents and local business.”

A formal contract signing will take place in early December.
