Straight wins £1.3M worth of contracts

Recycling container supplier Straight has been awarded £1.3 million worth of contracts to service four local authorities.

The firm is to supply kitchen caddies to Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Newcastle Under Lyme and Stockport. In total, it is supplying 212,000 homes with its seven litre caddies and 149,000 homes will receive its 23 litre kitchen caddies. Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council will also take delivery of 18 million compostable liners.

Straight chief executive Jonathan Straight said: Separating food waste from household waste is important as it allows councils to collect residual waste on a fortnightly basis, which saves them money. [It] also allows councils to use it to generate renewable energy and make compost, which are both financially and environmentally beneficial activities.

The smaller caddies let householders separate food waste in their kitchens, which can then be emptied into the bigger kerbside caddies to be collected for composting or anaerobic digestion.
