Tender for The procurement of materials from the Kerbside Recycling Collection Service 18th June 2018 to 17th June 2020 – 13th March 2018

Hyndburn Borough Council, (HBC) currently provides its residents with a kerbside recycling collection utilising re-usable sacks and boxes collected via non compaction Kerbsider collection vehicles.

A list of acceptable materials (see Appendix A) have been provided to residents via numerous leaflets and resident guides and the Council’s current partners have not reported any major concerns with contamination levels during the past 10 years.

From June 2018, the Council will start delivering 2 new wheeled bins to each property to replace the existing sacks and boxes. Residents will then place their Paper, Cardboard and Waxed Cartons in the brown wheeled bin and place their Glass, Cans and Mixed Plastics (including pot and tubs) in the blue wheeled bin. The bins will then be collected via normal refuse collection compaction vehicles.

Details and specification

The Council is looking for suitably experienced organisations to purchase materials from HBC’s domestic household recycling collections. Each organisation will be required to produce evidence at regular intervals throughout the contract that the material is re-used or recycled to comply with the ‘closed loop’ concept (ideally reprocessed within the UK).

Any organisation wishing to move material outside the UK should be aware that they will need to provide written evidence to show they have the appropriate licence from the Environment Agency if they wish to ship the material from the UK and proof that this material has been reused or recycled at its end destination (especially if utilising a Waste Broker / 3rd party).

This Contract will commence 18 June 2018 until 17 June 2020, (with an option for the Council to extend until 31 March 2021 or 17 June 2021) if both parties are in agreement.

Tender’s will not be considered unless they are submitted using the “two envelope” system.

The first envelope should only bear the words Tender for the sale of material from the Kerbside recycling collection’.
