WRG will treat and dispose of residual waste for Rutland County Council following a £7m contract win.
The waste management company will begin its new role in April, handling around 9,000 tonnes of waste each year for the next 10 years.
Group commercial manager Gordon Fergus said: “We are delighted to have won this contract against strong competition. Over time, it will not only assist Rutland council to reduce its dependence on landfill but also to manage its residual waste, after recycling has taken place, in a more sustainable way.”
The residual waste treatment will be split between landfill and WRG’s Eastcroft energy-from-waste facility in Nottingham.
