Anglesey awards new waste collection and cleansing contract

Anglesey has awarded a new long-term waste collection and cleansing contract to Biffa, one of the UK’s leading sustainable waste management companies.

The new eight-year contact, with an option to extend, will begin on April 1st 2021 and follows an extensive tendering process. The new contract is worth £40m over the initial eight-year period.

Biffa’s workforce have been collecting the Island’s waste and recycling since 2007. 

The existing partnership arrangement between the County Council and Biffa has seen Anglesey become one of the best recycling counties in the United Kingdom and consistently achieve high recycling rates. The level of cleanliness of streets and beaches has also developed into one of the best in Wales in recent years.

Anglesey’s Waste Management portfolio holder, Councilor Bob Parry, welcomed the new contract award.

Cllr Parry said, “This new contract will allow Anglesey to build on its long term partnership with Biffa, meet future targets and ensure further success in terms of our recycling efforts. I hope to see the very positive collaborative dialogue and ‘can do’ attitude that has existed between both parties continue into the new contract so that, together, we can maintain high quality services for the people of Anglesey for many more years to come.”

Initiatives next year will include a new state-of-the-art waste/recycling collection and cleansing fleet and the use of new technology to improve frontline services. All waste collection services will continue as existing in the first instance to ensure a smooth transition.

Roger Edwards Managing Director of Biffa’s Municipal division, added, “We are very excited to be working on this new contract with the Isle of Anglesey County Council, helping it to maintain the high standards achieved and increasing recycling rates even further. At Biffa we are committed to helping our customers recycle more, and our local Biffa team relish the opportunity to apply this knowledge and experience to achieve this with Anglesey County Council and continue our successful working relationship.”

Founded over 100 years ago, Biffa is now a UK leading sustainable waste management and recycling business; and at the forefront of development and innovation within the industry.
