Waste treatment contracts

Request

I would appreciate it if you could respond to the following freedom of information request. I would like to know details of contracts held by the authority with external organisations for the treatment of waste collected by the authority (or its collection contractor).

I am not interested in the contract for the collection of the waste, only for its treatment.

The contracts should be for the following waste types: -

* Food waste treatment only

* Food and green waste treatment

* Green waste treatment only

* Dry recyclates treatment or processing

For each contract please supply the following information: -

Name the of the contractor

Type of waste

(See list)

Date contract started dd/mm/yy

Duration

Extension options

Date contract expires dd/mm/yy

Annual tonnage (if contracted)

Does the authority procure the sale of dry recyclates itself? If yes, what is the name of the waste officer responsible for this?

Response

Thank you for your email request dated 12th April 2012. I have below detailed the information as requested:-

Food waste treatment only

• Food and green waste treatment

Food Waste is collected separately and disposed and treated through the processor designated by Essex CC. The food waste collected in Brentwood is bulk transferred to Agrivert, Oxfordshire

• Green waste treatment only

Green waste is collected separately and disposed and treated through the processor designated by Essex CC. The green waste is collected and delivered directly to Veolia, Pitsea and Country Style, Ongar.

• Dry recyclates treatment or processing

Dry recyclates are collected co-mingled in sacks apart from mixed glass which is collected separately from boxes. All dry recyclates are delivered for disposal and treatment through an SLA with Basildon Council whereby we deposit the collected recyclates at Basildon for on ward transfer to their contracted processors.

The co-mingled dry recyclate is then transferred to the Edmonton MRF at Enfield which is operated by Biffa Waste Services. The glass cullet is similarly delivered to Basildon and the collected by Berrymans for onward processing.
