Recycling Contract Secures Income for North West Leicestershire District Council

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 14:33 by Dawn Roache

North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) is celebrating after winning the contract to retain and sell the recycling it collects, giving the authority a potential £500,000 in annual income.

The seven year contract, which has been awarded by Leicestershire County Council (LCC), the statutory waste disposal authority, means NWLDC can continue to sell the recyclable materials that it collects from households in the district and keep the income. More »

North West Leicestershire has an excellent recycling rate, with 46 per cent of all material recycled. The district council will sell on plastics, food and drink cans, glass bottles, cardboard and paper to companies that then recycle the materials to make other goods.

Until now, LCC paid a recycling credit to NWLDC, but this is due to be withdrawn in 2018. The loss of this credit amounts to £400,000 less for NWLDC, but the new contract – worth around £500,000 in sales income each year - goes some way to mitigating that.

Councillor Alison Smith MBE, Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Community Services for NWLDC, said: "We're very thankful to our residents for doing such an excellent job in recycling their waste. In winning this contract and being able to sell recycling materials, it means we can carry on putting the income we receive back into services for the local people who have put in that recycling effort."

Councillor Blake Pain, cabinet member for waste, said: "Following a competitive tendering process, we are delighted to be able to continue working with North West Leicestershire District Council in our attempts to encourage residents to recycle their waste.

"Awarding this contract will not just help us towards our goal to save more than £1 million a year, but it supports the local economy and recycling services." » Less
