Biffa cleans up with Manchester City Council win
Long-standing B P Collins client, Biffa Municipal Ltd, was victorious with its recent bid on a tender for Manchester City Council’s waste collection and street cleaning services. Biffa was awarded an eight year contract, beginning this July, to provide both household collections and street cleansing services for over 514,000 Manchester residents.
Manchester City Council said the contract decision ensures that work can be carried out efficiently, with the contractor being responsible for both collecting waste and recycling as well as keeping streets clean.
Deputy leader of Manchester City Council, Bernard Priest, said of the decision to outsource the services: “We do so when it’s in the best interests of the people of Manchester. This is part of our strategy for transforming the cleanliness of the city.”
This successful bid sees Biffa winning one of the top contracts in the sector for one of England’s largest and highest profile cities.
Pete Dickson, Biffa’s commercial director, said of the successful bid: "We’re immensely proud to win the Manchester contract. It’s a real feather in Biffa’s cap and we’re confident that Biffa can make an important difference."
He said the sound advice provided by B P Collins made “an important contribution” to Biffa’s tender strategy.
