councils waste and recycling contract is still proving worthwhile despite speculation

14 Oct 2012

There has been speculation over whether the waste recycling collection contract between May Gurney and Cheshire West and Chester Council is still going strong, but the council insist that everything is fine.

This week on Tuesday, May Gurney issued a trading update, addressing issues of the waste recycling collection contract requirements, which include two long-term Kerbside sort deals that are part of the deal with the council.

May Gurney confirmed that, despite media speculation, financial performance of the contract remains strong.

A new contract is now due to provide savings of over £50m within the 14-year life of the agreement.

May Gurney has introduced a new ‘Recycle first’ Kerbside sort service which has been running since June 2012.

This service includes weekly food waste collections and has now been stretched out across the borough. Last Monday saw the service reach residents in Chester, who were the last to receive it in the areas covered by the council.

Since ‘Recycle first’ has been in production the council said that 70% of all household waste collected has been sent for recycling, reducing the amount that goes to landfill massively.
