£2.2 million waste deal is done

FOLLOWING a competitive tender process, recycling firm The NWH Group, has been awarded a two-year contract from Dumfries and Galloway Council for waste transport services.

The contract, which is already underway, is worth around £2.2 million, and covers the movement of waste from and between council-operated facilities, such as waste transfer stations and the Ecodeco mechanical biological treatment (MBT) plant near Dumfries which treats 60,000 tonnes of municipal waste a year through composting and mechanical separation technology.

The NWH will also be responsible for moving waste from Dumfries and Galloway’s waste transfer stations and the MBT plant to third party off-takers within the region and other contracted locations across the country.

NWH head of corporate sales Jamie Campbell said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Dumfries and Galloway Council.

“It’s more important than ever that we manage our partners’ waste sustainably and, with our strong environmental credentials, we’re in a prime position to assist the council with its recycling.

“This long-term relationship will further strengthen our growth in the local area and help to deliver on our commitment of ensuring a sustainable future for our communities.”

Based on 2020/21 figures, it is expected that the contract would cover 78,967 tonnes of waste per year, including municipal solid waste, wood, green waste, bulky waste, metal and plastic, cardboard and paper, solid recycled fuel, refused derived fuel, organic fines, glass and stone, and bypass.
