The Council operates an MRF facility in Cardiff which processes approx. 35,000 tonnes of Dry Mixed Recyclate (DMR) per year, however due to limitations of the facility it requires a third party to collect and transport any excess DMR to a facility to be sorted and recycled on its behalf.

Total Quantity or Scope

The Welsh Government has set local authorities statutory targets of recycling 58 per cent by 2016-17, 64 per cent by 2019-20 and 70 per cent of waste by 2024-25. The Council is encouraged to divert waste away from landfill so that it can be reused or recovered. 1.2 Cardiff Council collects approximate 750 tonnes of residential Dry Mixed recyclables (DMR) each week in green co-mingled plastic bags from the kerbside. 1.3 Cardiff Council operate our own Materials Reclamation Facility (MRF) which currently operates two shifts and has the capacity to process approximately 600 tonnes of the residential waste per week. 1.4 The Authority requires an arrangement, through a third party, for the processing, reuse/recycling and disposal of their municipal DMR waste. 1.5 The Contractor will arrange for collection and haulage of contract waste from the Waste Transfer Station (WTS) at Lamby Way site, Rumney, Cardiff, CF3 2HP and the safe and compliant transportation of the waste to their designated licensed treatment facility (ies). 1.6 The Service Provider shall be fully responsible for the waste on collection. Collection of the waste material by the Service Provider or a duly permitted third party, will be the responsibility (and at the cost of) the Service Provider. All hauliers must have a valid Waste Carriers Licence and either a valid SSIP or a completed H& S Questionnaire (Appendix 7). 1.7 It is anticipated that approximately 100 tonnes of residential waste will be available per week, however the Authority cannot guarantee that these volumes will not be reduced or be in excess of these anticipated amounts. During busy periods such as Christmas and New Year these volumes will be exceeded. 1.8 Further to 1.3, the Authority will conduct a review of the tonnage made available under the contract after the first 12 months of the contract. Prices quoted are fixed for each quarter and following this they are subject to indexation in accordance with the terms and conditions. 1.9 The transportation and treatment arrangement of the DMR materials under this contract shall be for a period of 12 months with an option of a 12 months extension. The contract is expected to commence in October 2021 with a review after each year has lapsed.
