Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

Casepak has been awarded a three-year contract to process 3,800 tonnes per annum of Rutland County Council’s mixed dry recyclables.

The contract, which started at the beginning of May 2017, is anticipated to continue for a period of three years. Casepak started its partnership with Rutland County Council in 2011, and the latest deal is expected to see it continue through to 2020.

Dave Brown, director for places (environment, planning and transport) at Rutland County Council, said: “Rutland is consistently ranked among the top performing local authorities in the country when it comes to recycling and we’re confident our partnership with Casepak will allow us to carry on this good performance.”

As part of the contract, Casepak will process a variety of waste materials including glass bottles and jars, paper, cardboard, metal packaging, aluminium foil, plastic packaging (excluding black plastics), plastic bottles and cartons, and household batteries. Recyclable materials will be collected through a co-mingled kerbside collection from nearly 17,000 homes in Rutland. Rutland currently boasts a 59% recycling rate.

The collected recyclables will be taken to Casepak’s £21 million MRF located on the Braunstone Frith Industrial Estate, Leicester, where it will be sorted and processed.

"Casepak’s MRF has the capacity to process up to 150,000 tonnes of material each year, recovering 95% of the material processed," said Georgina Cullen, business development director at Casepak.
