Wealden council issues RCV tender for kerbside collection expansion

Wealden District Council has issued a £1.5m tender notice for up to ten new refuse collection vehicles, in order to extend its kerbside recycling service across the district.

The three year contract calls for 26 tonne ‘twin pack’ waste collection vehicles, with bin lifts, which will enable the council to collect two waste streams simultaneously from their kerbside caddy bins.

Wealden District Council communications officer Jim Van Den Bos said: “The collection vehicles will be used to help with the district’s kerbside recycling scheme, which is being extended over the rural areas of Wealden.”

The first phase of the extension will take place in the north of the district, followed by the centre and an extension to the south later in the year.

When fully operational, the recycling programme will allow waste to be collected from 21,000 homes across the area.

The tender is due to close on July 19th.
