Hull-based recycling and waste management firm Biowise has announced a 15-year organic waste contract with Cheshire East Council.

The £30 million contract will expand the council's current household organic waste collection service to include food waste.

Biowise will design, build, finance and operate a £7m Gicom In-vessel Composting Facility (IVC), along with associated Aerated Static Pile (ASP) compositing, screening and blending operations at the council’s site in Crewe.

Planned to open in summer 2019, the Leighton Grange facility will have the capacity to process up to 75,000 tonnes of food and garden waste per year.

Councillor Don Stockton, cabinet member for environment at Cheshire East Council commented: “Biowise put forward a proposal that not only fulfilled all our strategic, operational and financial requirements, but assists us in making recycling as simple as possible for residents, with additional beneficial outcomes for the community and minimal disruption to service.”

In 2015, Biowise developed a similar IVC facility at their own site in Eppleworth, near Hull.
