Biffa’s municipal division has secured four new waste and recycling contracts.
Under a five-year contract for Warwickshire council, Biffa is now handling the bulk transport of around 23,000 tonnes of general and 13,000 tonnes of green waste collected annually at seven of the county’s HWRCs.
In Gloucestershire, Biffa has been awarded a three-year contract from June 2012 for bulking, transfer and sale of around 5,000 tonnes of dry recyclables a year for Forest of Dean District Council.
In the north-east, Hartlepool council awarded Biffa a short-term contract to handle kerbside recycling collections for around 45,000 households.
And, following a competitive tender process, Biffa has won a new one year refuse collection contract from South Staffordshire council.
Pete Dickson, development director of Biffa’s municipal division, said the news would help its staff finish the year “on a high”.
“As an integrated waste management company, it is important that we develop our portfolio of services that can support the entire value chain.”
