Norfolk council looking to negotiate better waste contract deal
North Norfolk’s waste contract is up for grabs with the authority looking to make savings on the current arrangement.
The council’s waste and related services contract with Kier is due to end within the next two years.
And members of the Cabinet meeting on Monday, June 5 decided to put the contract out to tender.
A report issued ahead of the meeting said that, “it offers a significant opportunity to look at new, potentially more effective methods of delivering the key frontline services on which residents depend”.
Members agreed with a recommendation to look for a new waste contract, in partnership with Broadland District Council, with the option for two other councils to be included.
Eric Seward, councillor for North Walsham North, agreed with the recommendation, and said: “The outcome will depend very much on who bids.”
