WRG wins £30m household waste recycling centres contract

Waste Recycling Group has won a £30 million seven year contract to run and improve Suffolk County Councils household waste recycling centres. The deal will see WRG operating 18 HWRCs across the county from 16 May.
WRG chief executive Jim Meredith said: We are very pleased to have won this contract as it builds on our growing portfolio of the successful management of these kind of facilities. We are looking forward to working with the people of Suffolk in providing them with an improved service in which they can continue to respond to the need to recover ever more value from their waste.

Suffolk Waste Partnership spokesman, council portfolio holder for environment and waste management Eddy Alcock said: WRG has shown a commitment and enthusiasm to improve levels of customer service. They are also committed to achieving an improvement in our current recycling levels and to achieving a level of 60 per cent recycling and composting during the lifetime of the contract.

Under the agreement, the contract could be extended for a further three years after the initial seven contracted.
