Wastewise wins major local authority waste contract

17th Jun 2014

Wastewise has won a multi-million pound contract to manage waste from homes across Humberside.

The Hull-based business successfully tendered to deliver waste management services on behalf of Hull City Council and The East Riding of Yorkshire Council, which covers towns such as Beverley, Goole and Bridlington.

The 10-year contract has been won in partnership with Hartlepool-based waste management firm J&B Recycling and will secure the long-term future of Wastewise and its 20 staff. 

The first contract will involve the collection of recyclable household materials from approximately 100,000 homes across the City of Kingston upon Hull. The waste – such as glass and plastic bottles, newspaper and cardboard – will be collected by Hull City Council wagons and will then be processed and managed at J & B Recycling. The business estimates it will be processing approximately 480 tonnes of waste per week and 25,000 tonnes per year.

The second contract involves the processing of garden and kitchen waste such as food, plants, grass and garden cuttings from approximately 263,000 homes across Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. Wastewise will develop a new In-Vessel Composting (IVC) facility at its site in Willerby to convert over 60,000 tonnes of organic waste from both councils into quality compost for use in horticulture and agriculture.

James Landau, Managing Director of Wastewise, added: “We are delighted to be working with J&B Recycling on these contracts. This way we can continue to support the local economy, keeping jobs secure and creating more opportunities alongside providing a quality waste management service.”
