Tewkesbury awards recycling contract

Tewkesbury Borough Council has awarded a recycling contract to Pure Recycling with the value of the contract determined by how much is recycled.

The agreement will see Pure Recycling – which today announced it has been acquired by construction firm Kier – processing commingled dry recyclables from 36,000 households. The firm will take paper, card, cardboard, aluminium and steel cans, mixed glass and plastic bottles.

Additionally, the contract requires a waste transfer station for the bulking of the dry recyclables and transportation of the materials to a materials recycling facility. Both of these will be subcontracted and the services of the MRF will also be subcontracted out until January 2011.

Pure Recycling is currently building its own MRF located in Warwickshire, which will start operating in March 2011.
