Palm begins Hartlepool contract

Palm Recycling has taken over a new local authority contract, replacing a hybrid scheme which was part in-house and part outsourced.

The seven-year contract for household collection and sorting for 42,000 households in Hartlepool Borough Council began this month.

Materials to be collected include: glass bottles and jars; drinks and food cans (ferrous and non-ferrous); paper; plastics; cardboard; textiles and shoes.

Collections will place over a four-day working week on a fortnightly basis and householders will place glass separately in a boxed container. Paper, cardboard, plastics and cans will be collected in a 240-litre wheeled bin.

Lennie Corrigan, operations regional manager Palm Recycling, said: “Palm Recycling’s network of reprocessors, including our parent company Palm Paper for the fibre reprocessing, will ensure the maximum amount of materials are recovered and processed into high quality raw materials.”
