Interim contracts PIN

Wednesday, July 12, 2006

Merseyside Waste Disposal Authority (MWDA), in partnership with the five District Councils on Merseyside and Halton Council are engaged in developing and implementing a long term joint municipal waste management strategy to achieve or exceed the required Biodegradable Municipal Waste (BMW) recycling recovery and diversion targets established by the partnership. The successful implementation of the strategy requires new waste management facilities, and the Authority plans to procure these through service contracts, with service provision commencing in 2008.

In the interim, before these long term contracts and facilities are in place, MWDA have a predicted shortfall of Landfill Allowances for BMW. The predicted shortfall in Landfill Allowances occurs in the period 2008 to 2013 and MWDA are interested in securing capacity for some or all of this period at existing or planned residual waste treatment facilities. MWDA would like to hear from organisations able to offer short term (up to five years) services for the treatment of residual waste resulting in the diversion of BMW from landfill.

This PIN refers to services for the short term treatment of residual waste only and not the treatment of source separated recyclates or green waste.

Organisations who are interested in providing services for the treatment of residual waste as described in this PIN should in the first instance contact Terry W Bradley, MWDA Procurement Director, email:

Depending on the response to this PIN a further contract notice for services for the short term treatment of residual waste may be issued.
