Countrystyle Recycling has been awarded a two year contract, with an option to extend for a further two years, worth in excess of £1.5m per year for the haulage and composting of up to 60,000 tonnes of organic waste by West London Waste Authority (WLWA).
Under the contract, Countrystyle is responsible for the collection, haulage and treatment of up to 30,000 tonnes of separate green waste and up to 30,000 tonnes mixed food and green waste from the six boroughs which make up West London Waste Authority’s jurisdiction.
Countrystyle will provide haulage of all materials from the three waste transfer stations in West London to treatment facilities using the Countrystyle fleet of vehicles, recently renewed to meet the highest environmental standards.
