Viridor has won a three-year contract with Lincolnshire County Council to transport and sort mixed recyclables in a bid to increase recycling levels.
Serving the districts of West Lindsey and City of Lincoln, Viridor will sort and market 19,000 tonnes of material at its materials recycling facility in Crayford, Kent. The contract, running to March 2013, will have a two-year extension option.
Viridor bid manager June Barlow said: “The contract will build on [the already very good recycling record] by providing Lincoln council with an excellent service and value of money.”
Glass, plastic bottles, aluminium and steel cans, mixed paper and cardboard will be collected.
Lincolnshire council waste operations team leader Ian Taylor said: “Lincolnshire residents should be justly proud of the county’s leading recycling record. We don’t want to rest on our laurels, though, and we are pleased to appoint Viridor to help further boost the recycling processes for West Linsey and the city of Lincoln.”
