Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Eight bid­ders have been in­vited to bid for the con­tract to treat South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s resid­ual waste.

A 10 year con­tract, with the pos­si­bil­ity of a five year ex­ten­sion, is on of­fer to help the author­ity com­ply with strict land­fill di­ver­sion tar­gets and com­ply with the forth­com­ing ban on the land­fill­ing of biodegrad­able waste.

The com­pa­nies who met the min­i­mum stan­dards now have un­til next Wed­nes­day (De­cem­ber 9), to ten­der their bids.

An eval­u­a­tion of the bids will take place through­out De­cem­ber and Jan­uary.

It is an­tic­i­pated the con­tract will be awarded in April or may ahead of the com­mence­ment date of April 1, 2017.

The suc­cess­ful bid­der will be re­spon­si­ble for en­sur­ing that 95 per cent of the resid­ual waste it re­ceives from the coun­cil is di­verted from land­fill.
