Straight, the recycling products and services group, has won tenders to supply seven local authorities in Wales with food and kitchen waste collection equipment worth approximately £1.42 million.
The seven local authorities include the following: Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council, Carmarthenshire County Council, Swansea County Council, Gwynedd Council, Powys County Council and Monmouthshire County Council.
Straight will supply different types of waste collection container aimed at meeting each local authoritys exact requirements. The containers include Straights Kerbside Caddy which has been purposely designed for food waste collection and is manufactured in the UK from recycled plastic.
The tender wins follow the Welsh Assemblys announcement that it is providing £14m in grants to local authorities to boost recycling across Wales over the next two years.
Straight chief executive Jonathan Straight said: The award of these tenders demonstrates our ability to help local authorities implement their recycling and composting plans and highlights the variety, quality and innovative designs of our products.
