Description

The purpose of this notice is to identify the level of interest in the market in delivering a collection and disposal service for commercial waste from Council Buildings which will also potentially include the Council’s partners’ buildings and other public sector organisations’ buildings.

At present the Council has a contract in place for the collection and disposal of commercial waste from 79 Council buildings and is due to expire in early February 2015. The majority of premises served under the present contract have two different containers provided, one is for mixed dry recyclable materials and the other one for residual waste. These vary in size from 120 litres through to 1100 litres and from alternate week recycling and waste collections through to 6 days a week collection frequency.
