News: South Yorkshire councils award recycling centre contract


Three South Yorkshire councils have awarded a seven-year contract to manage their household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) to Waste Recycling Group (WRG). Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council provide 14 HWRCs across the three boroughs, which together receive around 86,000 tonnes of household waste a year. The contract, which has a value of around £40 million, commenced on 29 October and can be extended by three years. Jim Meredith, Chief Executive of WRG, said: "We are delighted to have won this contract and are looking forward to providing an improved service to the people of Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham, and to add value to the excellent efforts they are currently making to recover more value and resource from their waste. "WRG already has a strong presence in Yorkshire and can therefore provide a tailored service based on local knowledge, as well as our wide experience and expertise from managing a large number of successful recycling centres across the UK." WRG will operate four sites for Rotherham MBC at Greasbrough, Bramley, Rawmarsh and North Anston.
