MWDA, in partnership with five District Councils of Merseyside is engaged in implementing a long term joint waste management strategy to achieve or exceed the MSW recycling, recovery, and diversion from landfill targets established by the partnership. The implementation of the strategy requires new waste management facilities and services which MWDA is procuring through a series of service contracts.
MWDA has already awarded contracts for the management of recyclables and compostables and for landfill disposal of MSW and is in the process of procuring a long term contract for the diversion of residual MSW from landfill: the “Resource Recovery Contract” (Contract Notice 2007/S 131-161090). It is anticipated that the services provided under the Resource Recovery Contract will commence in 2015.
MWDA is now seeking to procure capacity at residual waste disposal facilities to divert residual MSW for the period up to the full commencement of the services under the Resource Recovery Contract. Capacity is anticipated to be required from June 2012.
90500000, 90000000, 90510000, 90512000, 90513000, 90513100, 90513200
This procurement refers to the short term capacity contract(s) for the treatment of MSW only and not to the treatment of segregated recyclates, food waste or garden waste. Contractors will be required to achieve a minimum diversion from landfill rate of 50 %.
