Milton Keynes Council seeks new waste solution alone

Milton Keynes Council, one of the local authorities which lost its PFI credits for its waste management plans last year, is seeking industry views on how to deal with 70,000 tonnes of municipal waste at an upcoming open day.

Plans for the joint waste management programme with Northamptonshire County Council, Project Reduce, were shelved in December 2010.

Now, Milton Keynes has decided to break away from Northamptonshire and find a waste treatment solution by itself. It is holding an industry day on 29 March for companies interested in bidding for the long-term treatment of its residual waste.

Cabinet member for climate change, planning, environment and parishes Mike Galloway said: “We are obviously disappointed that, due to the loss of the PFI credits, Project Reduce has come to an end. But we have to continue to take a pro-active approach in solving the increasing problem of landfill within our authority.

“The industry day is an opportunity for companies who may look to provide a solution to find out information about the council’s views and to have an input to our thinking.”
