The contract, which is worth an estimated £3million with an option to extend a further two years, will see Countrystyle treat up to 30,000tonnes of separate green waste and up to 30,000tonnes of mixed food and green waste from the six London boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow and Richmond.
The agreement comes after WLWA signed a 25-year contract with a SITA UK-led consortium in November last year for the treatment and disposal of residual waste in the area, worth an estimated £1.4billion.
The Maidstone-based firm will use its fleet to provide haulage of all materials from the three waste transfer stations in West London, which have been recently renewed to meet environmental standards.
From there, mixed food and green waste will be treated at Countrystyle’s in-vessel composting facility in Ridham, Kent, where it will be processed into a PAS 100 certified product. Green waste will be taken for treatment in open windrow facilities.
