The Council is seeking tenders from suitably qualified and experienced contractors for the provision of a municipal waste haulage service. It is the intention of the Council to award the contract to one contractor.
The primary objective of the Contract is for the successful bidder to load, haul and deposit residual, mixed dry and mixed glass recyclable waste from the Council's waste transfer stations to nominated delivery points.
The successful bidder shall provide, operate and maintain appropriate plant at each of the waste transfer stations for the loading of waste into vehicles for hauling.
The contract will be for an initial period of 5 years with an option to extend up to a further 3 years. The maximum length of the Contract is therefore 8 years.

These tonnages may vary over the lifetime of the Contract.
