Council Announce Plans for Improved Doorstep Collections

A Wheelie Good IdeaLatimer parish residents are encouraged to attend the Annual General Meeting on Monday 22nd April (7:30pm in Ley Hill Memorial Hall) to find out more about the new waste collection arrangements due to be implemented in the summer of 2013.  What follows is an extract from a document on the Chiltern District Council website and you can read it in its entirety here>>…

Residents in two districts are set to receive improved refuse, recycling and street cleansing services after Chiltern and Wycombe District Councils awarded the joint contract to Serco Limited.

The contract is worth over £7 million per year but represents a joint cost saving to the councils of about £1.4 million a year.

The award of the joint contract, which is due to begin on 4 March 2013, has been based upon the delivery of improved services designed to increase the recycling rates in both districts to 60% by 2015,and improve street cleanliness.

The contract includes:

  • Household waste and recycling collections
  • Street cleansing

Councillor Peter Martin, Chiltern District Council’s Cabinet Member for Waste said: “Following a rigorous procurement process, Serco’s proposal to deliver waste, recycling and street cleansing services has been judged the best quality and value for money approach to meet the needs and aspirations of Chiltern, Wycombe and our residents.

With a total contract value of over £50 million over an initial 7 year term, Serco will also be working with both District Councils and the local communities to promote the service to help increase recycling rates and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.”

Councillor Audrey Jones, Wycombe District Council’s Cabinet Member for the Environment said: “The aim of the new joint contract is to provide the most economic services, at the same time introducing better collection services for the public, improving recycling rates across both districts and minimising the costs each council has to pay for waste collection.
