Leicestershire County Council, “the Authority”, wish to put in place a service level contract for the collection / transfer/treatment of hazardous waste types including clinical, paint, household chemicals and fly-tipped chemicals arising from Civic Amenity Sites, Waste Collection Authorities (WCA) and Highways Authorities (For the avoidance of doubt, a “civic amenity” (CA) is a place provided by a local authority in accordance to “Section 51 – functions of waste disposal authorities” of the Environmental Protection Act 1990). Although a majority of the waste in all lots is anticipated to be hazardous, there may be elements of that waste which is non-hazardous to which proposed separation options may be considered.

— Paint,
— Household Chemicals,
— Fly-tipped Chemicals.
In the context of this procurement exercise the term “treatment” is as per the revised waste framework directive: “Treatment” means recovery or disposal operations, including preparation prior to recovery or disposal.
