New Earth Solutions wins new waste contract from West of England Partnership

Renewable energy firm New Earth Solutions has won a waste contract from the West of England Partnership, which consists of four unitary authorities: Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Bristol City and North Somerset Councils.

The new five-year contract is due to start in 2011. The new service will contribute to landfill diversion and recycling targets and supports the partnerships aims to encourage households to reduce the amount of waste they produce.

New Earth Solutions was recently awarded a waste contract from Dorset County Council in April. The firm also recently acquired a composting facility in Gloucestershire.

Managing director Chris Cox said: New Earth will treat 120,000 tonnes of residual waste a year at our new facility in Avonmouth, Bristol. Our advanced treatment technology will provide the west of England with substantial landfill tax savings and a sustainable alternative to landfill disposal which can help mitigate the environmental impact of the waste as well as recover valuable resources.

Joint Waste Committee chairman Carl Francis-Pester added: This is an important milestone for the partnership. By working together we have been able to secure an excellent arrangement with New Earth Solutions that will greatly reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill and will save the councils millions of pounds. We are still committed to improving our recycling rates and reducing even further the amount of residual waste.
