17/00083 - Paper and Card Recycling from Waste Kent Household Waste Recycling Centres

KCC Waste Management is the statutory waste disposal authority for Kent and has an obligation in law to provide for the disposal of municipal waste. KCC is re-procuring the contract to obtain the best outcome for Kent residents by acquiring the greatest return for processing the paper and card material from six Household Waste Recycling Centres in West Kent.


The contract supports KCC’s Strategic Statement in the following ways:


·         A whole life cost evaluation approach will ensure that value for money is attained;

·         Local businesses will have an opportunity to bid for the contract; and

·         The contract will be environmentally beneficial as the paper and card is 100% recyclable therefore avoiding waste to landfill.

A Market Engagement exercise will be undertaken as part of the procurement process – no customer engagement is required as this is a non-customer facing service.


This has been discussed at the Environment and Transport Cabinet Committee on 21 September 2017.

Financial implications: This is an income based contract. As the market value of this material fluctuates, the service will undertake an e-auction, to secure the best tender rates.

Legal implications: Provision of such disposal services is a legal obligation under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and other such legislation.

Equalities implications: An EQIA has been carried out and no equalities implications have been identified.
