The University currently sends no waste directly to landfill and has an estimated recycling rate of 70 % (2013/14, by weight, via on-site segregation and off-site treatment, including food waste disposal). Its goal is to continue treating all waste, so that none is sent directly to landfill. It aims to ensure that in the future all areas have access to glass recycling and food waste collections, and not to send any useable furniture for disposal or recycling. Where technically, environmentally and economically practicable, waste should be segregated, consolidated, weighed and utilised as a resource. Data on the rates and types of diversion from landfill achieved are an important factor in the tender, balanced with the costs of collecting such data.
The Contractor shall be responsible for the management of the services as defined herein. The Contract is for the provision of a comprehensive management service, including the collection, removal and recycling/re-use/disposal of wastes listed under section 2.2 of the tender documents from the University of Northampton’s campuses at Park Campus (NN2 7AL) and Avenue Campus (NN2 6JD), as well as from other University owned sites; Podiatry Clinic, St. John’s Hall of Residence, University of Northampton Innovation Centre and iCon Environmental Innovation Centre (Daventry).
It is anticipated that the Contract will commence on 1.9.2015 and will run for 2 years with an option to extend for a further 1 year.
