Warwick and Stratford-on-Avon District Councils announce new waste contractor
Following a successful procurement process Warwick and Stratford-on-Avon District Councils have awarded a joint refuse and recycling services contract to Biffa Waste Services Ltd.
Starting in August 2022, the new South Warwickshire service will include the introduction of a 123+ system, with separate weekly food waste collections, fortnightly co-mingled dry recycling collections and three-weekly residual waste collections, with the aim of reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.
Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Environment & Neighbourhood Services Councillor Alan Rhead commented;
“We’re very pleased to have awarded this contract to Biffa who have a strong track record in waste management throughout the UK and have demonstrated their commitment to improving recycling rates and providing households across both districts with an easy, efficient and reliable service.”
“As part of this new contract, we are also working with our neighbouring councils to utilise the new state of the art material recovery facility currently under construction, which will make a real difference to the recycling capabilities of our region”.
The contract with Biffa Waste Services Ltd. runs until July 2030. Further details of the new waste collection services will be made available to residents over the coming months.
