Biffa Awarded Five Year Contract for Enfield
The UK’s leading nationwide integrated waste management firm, Biffa, has won a five year contract to provide single stream household dry mixed recycling and organic waste services to the borough of Enfield.
Enfield, which has one of the highest recycling rates year on year in London, awarded the contract to Biffa after a competitive tender process which saw them retain the contract.
The borough’s dry mixed recyclables will be processed at Biffa’s flagship Edmonton Materials Recycling Facility (MRF), one of the capital’s largest, processing nearly 10 per cent of north London’s waste. Organic food and garden waste will be bulked at Edmonton and processed at the company’s Ufton composting unit.
Around 23,000 tonnes of paper, card, cans, plastics and glass is collected in Enfield each year, along with 20,000 tonnes of organic waste.
Steve Oulds, Biffa’s National Commercial Manager, says retendering and retaining the contract for Enfield is a proud achievement for his team.
“We are truly delighted to be continuing our work with Enfield council and are dedicated to supporting them to further increase recycling rates across the borough.
“Both the council and our team on the ground in Enfield share a common goal to deliver quality materials into our Edmonton MRF and ensure that waste is directed away from landfill wherever possible.
“We work with a number of London boroughs and this is familiar territory to us. We’re confident that we can continue to make a real difference in Enfield.”
The five year contract includes an extension of up to three years. Biffa’s state-of-the art Edmonton facility is licensed to process up to 350,000 tonnes of recyclables annually.
