Lincolnshire County Council, as the Waste Disposal Authority, currently collects mixed recycling but is looking to move towards a source separated approach. Following a successful trial of separated paper and card collections across 7 158 households within 3 Districts, LCC is looking to establish contract/contracts with providers to whom we will direct source separated paper and card.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

 

The Council currently collects mixed recycling from households but is moving to source separated cardboard following a successful trial. The Council has run three trial projects for source separated paper and cardboard across the County since September 2019 involving 7158 households and has been popular with residents involved.

We intend to roll the trial out across the seven Districts within Lincolnshire starting with Boston Borough Council in Spring 2021 followed by North Kesteven District Council in Autumn 2021. The dates for South Kesteven District Council, West Lindsey District Council, East Lindsey District Council, City of Lincoln and South Holland are currently to be confirmed but we believe they will all be source separated paper and card collections by 2024.

The Council is looking to establish a contract/contracts with providers to whom we will direct the source separated paper and card. We intend to procure the contract(s) and this exercise is to gain a further understanding of the market, the likely interest and to inform our specification and commercial arrangement. The Council is looking to meet with providers who currently have the capacity to handle the volumes the Council expects and not the providers who do not (for volumes see below). The Council would like to organize meetings with interested providers which we are looking to hold between 21 September 2020 and 2 October 2020 and interest needs to be registered to leanne.fotherby@lincolnshire.gov.uk

Current volumes of paper and card in the recycling bins — (tonnage) 24 620

Current volumes of paper and card in the residual bins — (tonnage) 7 390.
