Wirral Council is tendering for the provision of a Litter Enforcement Contract. Wirral organises its work into four Zone lots of geographical areas. These are coterminous with the local constituency areas.
The 4 lots are defined as;
Lot 1 — Birkenhead,
Lot 2 — Wallasey,
Lot 3 — Wirral South, and
Lot 4 — Wirral West.
The geographical map of constituency areas is available for download on the Chest.
Wirral Council is inviting tender responses for a suitably experienced and qualified contractor with a proven track record of delivering fixed penalty notices to the public and that can provide uniformed officers and the necessary infrastructure to work in partnership with the Council in order to provide Litter Enforcement Services throughout the borough of Wirral.
Environmental Crime can affect the quality of the local environment and can have an impact on how places look and are perceived. For example a poor quality local environment can also have wider impacts such as public health and begin a decline in community spirit and decreased property values.
The initial contract term will run for a period of 2 YEARS, from 1.7.2015 to 30.6.2017, with a further option to extend for a further year should the Authority so wish.
This contract will require the contractor to provide a team of experienced and competent enforcement officers, a team leader and adequate administrative support to a high profile enforcement initiative tackling street litter across the borough. The primary focus of the initiative in the first instance is to engender behavioural change in relation to environmental crimes.
The tenderer will be required to prepare case files and prosecution evidence on behalf of the Council in the event of none payment of FPN’s.
The scope of the Service may be extended within the contract period to include offences covered by other legislation with agreement of the Parties, where the issuing of fixed penalties and associated warnings are permitted.
