II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
It is estimated that the City Council will require the appointed Contractor to receive, reprocess and market between 24 500 and 55 000 tonnes of Dry Recyclables per annum. Such recyclables may include recyclables collected by the City Council for agencies and bodies in its administrative area as well as commercial customers. At present, approximately 24 500 tonnes of Dry Recyclables (currently 17 000 t, 5 000 t and 2 500 t of commingled, segregated mixed paper/card and segregated glass respectively) are reprocessed and marketed per annum. It is expected, but not guaranteed that the amount of Dry Recyclables collected for reprocessing will increase substantially in the contract period in an effort to meet the municipal waste targets established for 2020. The appointed contractor must therefore be capable of accepting not less than 55 000 tonnes of the City Council’s dry recyclable waste per annum.
It is not intended that the City Council will guarantee any minimum tonnage but the Contractor will be given exclusivity over the Dry Recyclable waste stream. The appointed contractor shall provide delivery points within a 35 minute drive by LGV in moderate traffic from the central London landmark, Marble Arch, London (the exact border will be shown by a red line plan issued with the Invitation to Submit Final Tender (‘ISFT’) so there is no doubt).
The Contract is being procured to assist the City Council in meeting its obligations under relevant EU directives, applicable legislation and the Mayor of London and the City Council’s ‘Municipal Waste Management Strategy’. Accordingly, it is the aspiration of the City Council to switch from general waste disposal approaches to more recycling over the contract period so as to satisfy the requirements of the strategy. A 35 % municipal waste recycling target has been set for the City Council to achieve by 2020. The current rate is 15 %.
This procurement is 1 of 3 standalone procurements which collectively form the relet of the City Council’s waste disposal requirements (the other 2 procurements are for ‘Residual Waste Treatment and Disposal’ Contract and ‘Food Waste Treatment and Disposal’ Contract).
