Composting company TEG Environmental has been awarded two new contracts worth up to £1.7m.
TEG has won the contract to handle food and garden waste in Fife. The three-year contract has an optional two-year extension and will cover all mixed waste collected by Fife Council. Anticipated revenue from the contract will range from £700,000 to £900,000 depending on the rate of waste arisings. However, the council expects the waste will rise from the current rate of 1,200 tonnes a year to more than 9,000 tonnes a year by 2013.
The second contract sees TEG partnering up with May Gurney Environmental Services to handle the food waste May Gurney collects under its Bridgend contract. The waste will eventually be processed at a facility which is currently being developed by TEG at Stormy Down near Bridgend. Until this is completed, TEG will sub-contract the services within its network of plants and third party facilities.
TEG chief executive Mick Fishwick said: “The [Bridgend] contract will provide the first waste stream and revenues into the Stormy Down facility and with the high level of market interest in Wales, we are confident of significant further contract wins in 2010 and beyond.”
May Gurney managing director Nicola Peake added: “Food waste processing is a key element in the new collection and recycling services we’ve introduced for Bridgend residents and TEG is leader in its field.”
