Casepak secures 64,000 tonne recycling contract with Leicestershire County Council

Leicester-based recycling and waste management firm Casepak has been awarded a contract by Leicestershire County Council to process up to 64,000 tonnes per annum of dry mixed recyclables.  Leicestershire County Council put the contract to process the county’s dry recyclables out to tender following the Cabinet’s decision to pass its ‘Dry Recycling Credit Saving Strategy’, which sought ways to reduce the County Council’s expenditure on recycling credits.   Casepak already has existing contracts in place with several Leicestershire waste collection authorities, which will continue to be covered under the terms of the new contract so the transition is expected to be smooth.  The company currently processes a combined 38,000 tonnes per annum of recyclable materials from Blaby District Council, Charnwood Borough Council and Harborough District Council at its Materials Recycling Facility (MRF).   Casepak also manages an additional 6,000 tonnes per annum from Recycling and Household Waste Sites in Leicestershire at its Collections and Processing Facility in Enderby.  In addition, the new...Read More >

Casepak wins 9,000 tonne contract with Erewash Borough Council

Leicester-based recycling and waste management company, Casepak has been awarded a contract by Erewash Borough Council to process 9,000 tonnes of co-mingled, kerbside recyclables per annum.
