Obtaining the best price for recycling or the lowest gate fee for waste is critical to the overall financial performance of a waste service. The rise of new treatment technologies and the development of an international market for waste due to surplus incinerator capacity in continental Europe mean that prices are more volatile than in the past, and obtaining the best deal is now a more complex matter than in the past.
Eunomia has worked with numerous local authorities and private waste contractors to secure highly competitive deals for waste treatment and recycling. We have a detailed grasp on the market and a keen appreciation of the approaches that are most likely to yield successful outcomes.
Our expertise led us to be commissioned by WRAP to prepare guidance intended to help local authorities maximise the benefit that they obtain for the dry recyclables collected as part of their provision of waste services.
