The same services are currently provided to 1 120 properties at Buckshaw Village which are located in South Ribble Borough Council’s area.

All waste collected is currently delivered to a purpose built waste treatment facility operated by Lancashire County Council at Farington, to the North of the borough.

The principal refuse and recycling activities include delivery of an alternate weekly refuse and recycling collection service to nearly all properties in the borough, approximately 50 500 with around 170 properties still receiving a weekly residual waste collection due to access difficulties. The contract will be for collection and delivery to a disposal site(s) approved by Chorley Council. Recyclable co-mingled plastic bottles, cans and glass is collected once every two weeks from each household with co-mingled paper and cardboard collected once every 4 weeks. Garden waste collection is a chargeable service and currently 22 000 properties have opted into this service, which is managed and owned by the council.

The contract will also include a bulky waste collection service managed by the Council but for the contractor to carry out.

The contract period is for 10 years plus 11 weeks (1.4.2019 until 15.6.2029) with the option to extend up to a further two years. The estimated contract value of 30 000 000 GBP includes for the full potential contract period, including the period of optional extension and is based on current contract requirements.
