May Gurney takes £85m waste deal

May Gurney has won an ВЈ85m waste deal for North Somerset Council.

The new contracts begin in March 2010 and include recycling, waste collection, and the management of the Council’s Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) for over 204,000 rural and urban residents in North Somerset. The contracts run for an initial 7 years with up to 7 further years of extensions available.

Philip Fellowes-Prynne, chief executive of May Gurney, said: "We are delighted to have been selected as preferred bidder by North Somerset Council for this significant long-term contract for the delivery of essential front-line services.

"The Council appointed us because of our ability to truly transform their recycling and waste services – they have called it a вЂrecycling revolution’ – to deliver long-term environmental benefits and value for money. This new contract consolidates our established position at the forefront of innovative service provision that is focused on reducing the amount of waste going to landfill and extracting the maximum value from recycled materials. Our approach is in total accord with the Government’s recently announced initiatives to make Britain a zero waste nation. May Gurney now delivers similar services to 17 local authorities, covering 1.5 million households across the UK”.
