New partnership for Household Waste Recycling Centre

Following a full tender process, Bedford Borough Council is delighted to announce it has now awarded the management and operation of the Household Waste Recycling Centre to HW Martin Waste Limited.

 

HW Martin Waste Limited will take over operation of the site for five years from 21st June 2012. The contract was tendered as the previous contract, which was inherited from the former County Council, expires in June.

 

The Household Waste Recycling Centre, situated on Barkers Lane, is open 7 days a week and provides an excellent facility for local residents to recycle a huge range of materials in a safe and convenient set up.
 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “The Household Waste Recycling Centre provides an excellent service for local residents and is ranked among the highest performing recycling and reuse sites in the UK.
 

“This new contract is great news for local residents as it ensures the HWRC will remain open 7 days a week and continue to recycle a huge range of materials as well as saving £270,000 per year of local taxpayers’ money.

 

“This is the second new waste partnership we have announced in recent months. They both ensure that local residents will continue to receive an excellent level of service, while the contracts will save a combined £370,000 per year, helping to protect these frontline services.”

 

James May, Marketing Manager at HW Martin Waste Ltd, added: “The Barkers Lane Household Waste Recycling Centre is an excellent example of a well-designed and built HWRC, making recycling pleasant and hassle-free for the public. 

 

“We are very proud that Bedford Borough Council has entrusted us with the management of the site for the next 5 years.  Our experience in HWRC management is second to none; Barkers Lane will see recycling increase whilst bringing real savings for the Council and its residents.”
