North Wales waste down to two

24 August 2012 Two bidders remain in the running for the £800m North Wales waste PPP.
Sita and Wheelabrator will compete for a contract to handle waste for five North Wales councils. Veolia is no longer in the race.

The North Wales Residual Waste Treatment Project, a joint procurement by Flintshire county council, Conwy county borough council, Denbighshire county council, Gwynedd council and the Isle of Anglesey county council, is seeking a contractor to build and operate a waste treatment facility for 25 years.

The project will treat around 150,000 tonnes of residual household waste and is backed by £142m in funding from the Welsh government.

The final bidder will be selected next year, with the facility expected to be operational by 2017.
