Commercial waste collection service

The Council is inviting quotations from an individual or group of certificated operators to deliver a collection service for commercial residual waste, mixed recycling and the segregation of cardboard, for a period of one year commencing on 1st April 2023, as requested by local businesses that are unable to make use of the Council’s weekly in-house service.

The Council expects all waste and recycling to be delivered to the Porthmellon Waste and Recycling site in accordance with the Council’s waste & recycling acceptance policy.

The contractor will be required to work with the Council to administer business’ requirements and work with the waste and recycling team based at the Porthmellon Waste & Recycling Site to ensure access is available to meet the needs of the service and local businesses. The successful contractor will need to ensure health and safety aspects, both during collection, and whilst visiting council waste facilities, are met.

All costs of the waste collection and waste/recycling disposal at the Porthmellon Waste and recycling site will be borne by the contractor. The Council will provide the commercial waste contractor with weighbridge tickets, detailing waste types, weights and charges.
