19/00040 - South West Kent Dry Recyclables Processing Contract - SC18061

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes




Due to changes to the mix of co-mingled dry recyclable materials collected by both Tunbridge Wells Borough Council (TWBC) and Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council (TMBC) from 30th September 2019, Kent County Council (KCC) needs to source an alternative supplier to process this waste for recycling and re-processing.


The dry recyclable waste collected by the Borough Partnership cannot be incorporated into the existing contract as the composition of the material is different.


The Contract will be environmentally beneficial as the materials will be recycled therefore avoiding less desirable environmental impact.



As Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste I agree to award contractual arrangements for the disposal and processing of recycled materials collected by these two Waste Collection Authorities up to a 4-year contract period.
