Derbyshire-based metal and waste recycling specialist, Ward, has been awarded a two year waste container contract with Derbyshire County Council, with an option to extend for a further 2 yrs.
Following a competitive tender process, the multi-million pound contract to supply, deliver and manage approximately 1,300 skips and 100 roll on roll off containers annually, was awarded to Ward to service areas of Chesterfield and north and south Derbyshire.
Tracy Bryan, Senior Commercial Manager at Ward, said: “This is a great achievement by the team. We're very much looking forward to working with Derbyshire County Council to supply a comprehensive skip, container and waste management service.
“Our aim is always to reduce waste to landfill and by handling approximately 25 containers per week for the Council, we can enable them to achieve their recycling goals and reduce carbon emissions, by managing multiple waste streams locally.”
As a nearby business with multiple metal recycling and waste processing facilities in the Midlands, Ward will deliver the contract from its material processing sites at Chesterfield, Ilkeston and Swadlincote.
