We are delighted to advise that we have secured a 10-year contract with North Lincolnshire Council to treat 17,500 tonnes of green waste per year.
The unitary authority is part of the Yorkshire and Humber region and has a population of over 169k* including the towns of Scunthorpe, Brigg, Haxey, Crowle, Epworth, Bottesford, Kirton in Lindsey and Barton-upon-Humber.
This is the 11th municipal contract to add to the our portfolio, valued at circa. £4.5m and will cover the treatment of around 17,500 tonnes of green waste per year. The waste will be collected from the kerbside and directly delivered by roadside collection vehicles to a site within the council area. This processing site will be run in partnership between Biowise, Down to Earth Recycling Ltd and Brier Hills Recycling Ltd.
A spokesperson for North Lincolnshire Council commented: “Biowise are providing us with an efficient and proven solution for the treatment of our green waste, the end product of which is high grade compost that promotes the circular economy.”
Over 95% of the waste will be recycled into PAS100 quality compost for horticultural and agricultural use. The majority will serve the local agricultural community thus helping reduce the carbon footprint of the area. The remaining process outputs are recycled or sent for energy and heat recovery.
“We look forward to working with North Lincolnshire Council in helping them achieve their waste management goals. The long-term contract will ensure that, together, we create clear, efficient processes to ensure an effective waste service for residents where as little as possible is wasted,” said Bob Wilkes, Managing Director, Biowise.
