Response

Thank you for your Freedom of information request regarding our current recycling and waste support and maintenance contracts.

Brentwood Borough Council is a Waste Collection Authority and not a waste disposal authority, all our disposal contracts are awarded by Essex County Council so for details of these you would need to contact ECC.

The collections for residual, mixed recycling, food waste, garden waste and glass collections are all run in house by Operational staff employed by the Council, therefore the questions below do not apply.

The Council does have a contract for the collection of mixed dry and glass recycling treatment in partnership with Basildon Council. The contract expires in July 2015 and was four a 4 year period. The supplier is Biffa and Berrymans recycling. The contract will be reviewed prior to the expiry date.
The responsible officer for the Operational Services would be the Head of Street Scene and Parking, Mr Ormsby. Contact details would be 01277 312500 - roy.ormsby@brentwood.gov.uk
