Job description

Your new company

Our client is the public face of municipal waste management in Worcestershire and Herefordshire. An initial 25-year contract with Worcestershire County Council and the Herefordshire Council was established in December 1998 under the Private Finance Initiative. This contract brought an integrated waste management service to the two counties, leading to the more sustainable management of municipal waste.

When the Company started its work in Worcestershire and Herefordshire in 1998, over 90% of municipal waste from the two counties was landfilled. Since then, our client has invested in a range of activities which, in parallel with initiatives driven by the County and District authorities, have helped to reduce landfilling to less than 30%. The most notable achievements have been:

  1. Improvements and performance of Household Waste Recycling centres where recycling rates are now generally above 70%
  2. Delivery of the Energy from Waste Facility through which energy is recovered from the residual waste that cannot be recycled, generating electricity for export to the national grid
  3. Delivery of the Materials Reclamation Facility through which pass all the kerbside recyclable materials collected by the Districts.
  4. Progressive increase in the quantity of green waste composted and resultant soil conditioner utilised, which has contributed to the process of moving waste up the ‘Waste Hierarchy.’
  5. Investing in waste transfer facilities for the safe, secure, and efficient transport of waste from the point of arisings to treatment or disposal site.
  6. Through ongoing service improvements and education and awareness-raising, we have in place all the facilities to help the Waste Disposal Authority meet its recycling and composting targets.
