Merseyside Waste Disposal Authority has selected waste management firm Veolia Environmental Services as its preferred bidder for a new 20-year waste contract.

Veolia will work in partnership with MWDA to provide waste management with a major recycling infrastructure investment programme including a new materials recovery facility in Gillmoss, Liverpool

The bid includes:
* Refurbishment and management of a network of 16 household waste recycling centres;
* Investing in improving the performance of the existing Bidston MRF;
* And operation of the existing four transfer stations servicing the waste collection authorities.

A MWDA spokeswoman said it could not release the financial value of the contract due to its 'market sensitive position' but will release in a month's time.

The news comes just as Liverpool City Council recently awarded Merseyside Waste Disposal Authority planning permission for a new £20 million recycling park (see MRW story).

Veolia Environmental Services chief executive Denis Gasquet said the partnership will make a major contribution to improving the waste infrastructure across Merseyside and diverting more waste away from landfill. He added: “In particular we believe the investment within the Gillmoss recycling park will not only significantly increase local recycling capacity but be the focus for a major community education and engagement exercise designed to build real momentum behind recycling.
