New contract with Staffordshire Moorlands| BY WishAgency
We are delighted to have been awarded a 2-year contract for the treatment of organic waste from the district of Staffordshire Moorlands.
Our tenth municipal contract, this latest Staffordshire Moorlands deal commenced on April 1st and is valued at around £1,300,000 over the period of two years. The contract will be run by AES, Alliance Environmental Services Ltd, on behalf of Staffordshire Moorlands District Council.
All the organic material from Staffordshire Moorlands is bulked up at a central location in Leek and this will be collected by Wastewise for transportation to our own Cheshire East plant. This state-of-the-art Gicom In-vessel Composting Facility (IVC) in Leighton Grange, near Crewe can process up to 90,000 tonnes of organic waste per annum.
Since opening in June 2020, the facility has exceeded expectations in efficiency and processing capabilities, allowing additional capacity to take this new consignment of organic waste.
Darren Wood, AES Ltd commented: “Wastewise are providing us with an efficient and proven solution for the treatment of our organic waste, the end product of which is high grade compost that promotes circular economy.”
Over 96% of the waste inputs at Crewe are recycled into quality compost for use in horticultural, agricultural, landscaping or land remediation sector. All other process outputs are recycled or sent for energy and heat recovery.
“We look forward to supporting Staffordshire Moorlands District Council and AES with their organic waste treatment and in helping them achieve their waste management goals. We are proud to support 10 local authorities across north and mid-England, using our purpose-built facilities to ensure as little as possible is wasted,” said Bob Wilkes, Managing Director of Wastewise.
