Contractors sought to modernise recycling site

Recycling processing hall

Posted on: 17 June 2019

Contractors with an interest in tendering to improve the district council’s recycling site are being invited to find out more at an information event next month.

North Devon Council is holding an engagement day for potential contractors at its process hall at Brynsworthy Environment Centre on Wednesday 10 July 2019 from 10am to 12pm.

The council operates a kerbside collection service for dry recycling to approximately 45,000 households per week. All collected recycling is returned to the site for processing each day. The council wants to modernise its processing equipment and implement an integrated traffic management plan to complement the new system.

Leader of North Devon Council, Councillor David Worden says: “As a district we are now recycling more than ever before. This is fantastic, but it means that we need to look at modernising our machinery and processes to keep up with the increasing volume.  This information day will give interested contractors the opportunity to visit our site, see how it works, and consider whether they may be the right business to help us meet our current and future requirements.”

If you wish to attend the information day please confirm your attendance by email to
