Waste & Recycling Contract

The Council’s existing contract with Biffa for the collection of household waste and recycling is due to expire at the end of January 2021.

The contract includes an option to extend this, by mutual agreement with Biffa, for a further period of up to three years.

Should the Council or its contractor not wish to take up this option then a re-procurement process would ideally need to be initiated in July 2019, in order to allow sufficient time for the contract procurement process, as well as the procurement of the necessary vehicle fleet within the mobilisation period.
