Written by: Editorial staff | Published:
The original contract was cancelled in September this year

Manchester's regional waste contract is to be re-procured next month by the Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority (GMWDA), following its cancellation earlier this year.

The contract will include residual waste management services, household waste recycling and transfer services, bio waste management services and all associated works.

This will be spread out across a number of sites, including five residual waste sites, 20 household recycling centres and eight transfer loading stations.

Signed in April 2009, the now cancelled 25-year contract with Viridor Laing (VLGM) was the UK's largest combined waste and energy project.

GMWDA provides recycling and waste disposal services for over one million households in Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford.

A suppliers briefing session will be held on Thursday 2nd November at Manchester Art Gallery, where the GMWDA will outline its aspirations for the project, detail the scope and the procurement process with timescales and submission requirements.

Interested parties should register by Wednesday 25th October by e-mailing
