A social enterprise company has landed the contract to manage three household recycling centres in Denbighshire - but not including the 'pop-up' site in Llangollen.
As part of the same seven-year contract Bryson Recycling will also be running five sites in Conwy County Borough.
The company says it aims to increase recycling rates, introduce more reuse activities and implement their local circular economy approach to recycling.
The Denbighshire sites it will be running are those at Lon Parcwr in Ruthin, Colomendy in Denbigh and Marsh Road, Rhyl.
Bryson told llanblogger the contract does not include the sites at Llangollen Pavilion car park and Green Lane car park, Corwen which a spokesperson said were "outside the scope of the tender".
Bryson have been working with Conwy County Borough Council since 2014 when they won a contract to manage their household recycling centres, and in 2020 they introduced a garden waste collection service for their local residents.
The company says this new contract, which is due to commence on April 1st 2022, will result in them significantly increasing their operation in North Wales.
General manager Gareth Walsh said “We are extremely pleased to be working in partnership with both councils and are looking forward to introducing our social enterprise approach to recycling across all five sites with the aim of increasing recycling and reuse whilst providing an excellent service to local residents. We are also keen to look an innovative ways to engage and work with local communities.”
Councillor Brian Jones, lead member for Waste, Transport and the Environment at Denbighshire County Council, said: “Working together with Conwy Council to appoint a single operator has enabled us to provide value for money for our residents as the management costs have reduced.
"We know the recycling centres are very popular with our residents and we receive many compliments about the staff that work there.
"The site staff, currently managed by CAD Recycling Ltd, will transfer to the new operator, meaning residents will still receive the same high standard of service they are used to, but will also benefit from new investment in our facilities.
"I’m delighted to see that the new contract also includes more green initiatives, such as availability of free compost to site users and support of reuse projects within our communities.”
