12/11/2020 - Approval to the terms of waste contract extensions terminating 31st March 2024 with Biffa, FCC and Mid UK ref: 681    Recommendations Approved

To put in place contract extensions for three of the principle waste contracts

With the advent of the Covid restrictions there was insufficient time available to be able to successfully complete retendering prior to existing contract expiry. The proposal achieves a common expiry date then allowing for a holistic retendered contract to run from 1st April 2024. This is beneficial at a number of levels. This also will allow essential work relating to the review of the Council’s waste strategy and associated options appraisal to take place.
