Description

South Northamptonshire Council is currently seeking expressions of interest from suitably experienced and established contractors who wish to be selected to tender for the provision of food and/or garden waste treatment services.

The Council’s garden waste service is alternate weekly collections from wheeled bins. The Authority collects around 11,000 tonnes per year and this is currently delivered and treated at two locations within the district boundary.

The Authority hopes to expand its service to include a weekly collection of food waste from May 2013. It is expected that the service will collect around 3,000 tonnes of food waste per year. However it should be noted that this amount is subject to change depending on levels of participation and performance.

The collection service currently operates out of one depot at Towcester. It is proposed that the weekly food waste collections will be made by a podded vehicle which will collect the food waste/residual waste in separate pods one week and food waste/recyclable waste in separate pods on the next week and so on. This will be done for operational efficiency and to minimise the number of passes to each household.

The Authority does not own any transfer/bulking facilities but is open to suggestions from the Contractor on where food waste can be bulked or transferred to in order to minimise travel by the collection vehicles.

The contract will be divided into two lots and Contractors can bid for either or both lots.

Lot 1 – Food Waste Treatment
Lot 2 – Garden Waste Treatment

Durantion of contract: 3 years with option to extend for an additional 3 years.
