Bywaters wins Parliament recycling contract

London firm Bywaters has signed a five-year contract to provide recycling services for the Parliamentary Estate.

Following an open tender, the company will provide collection and disposal services for nearly all wastes produced at the Palace of Westminster and an additional 14 sites, including Portcullis House, until November 2021.

Under the five-year contract, which has an option for a two-year extension, Bywaters will also be helping to run a communications campaign aimed at MPs and employees to improve the estate’s recycling performance.

The contract includes the supply and maintenance of on-site bespoke waste compactors, and colour-coded waste recycling bins to improve recycling by employees and cleaning staff.

Materials for recycling will be handled at the company’s MRF in Bow, which is capable of processing up to 125,000 tonnes of material a year.

Bywaters managing director John Glover said: “Our bespoke approach working in partnership with the Parliamentary Estate, together with a dedicated contract manager and three waste operatives based permanently on-site, will ensure smooth running for the contract as we work towards improving our recycling rates.

“Our goal is to meet and exceed expectations.”
