Council Seeks Partner For Reusable Materials Project /
This article is old - Published: Monday, Apr 4th, 2016

City of Cardiff Council is in the process of securing a partner to manage a new project for processing reusable material collected from residents. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The project would involve collecting bulky waste deemed reusable directly from households and running a “pop up” shop at a suitable Council property. Eventually the “pop up” reuse shop will be superseded by a warehouse to receive donations and where repairs and safety checks can be carried out prior to reissue. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

A City of Cardiff Council spokesperson said: “We are looking for a third sector partner to run a strategy which has massive community benefits and is also designed to help us meet our statutory recycling targets. We have carried out research which has shown that a significant amount of waste could be reused and either sold or donated to those in need. We believe that a collection service for reusable material and a warehouse for receiving donations will provide a great service for the residents of Cardiff and make a massive contribution towards the recycling targets set by the Welsh Government.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Council has issued a Prior Information Notice outlining the criteria required and interested parties are invited to submit written proposals by midday on April 15th, 2016. The notice is available on “Sell2Wales” the public sector procurement website run by the Welsh Government using reference APR128453. Proposals and enquiries should be directed to Jennifer Sadler on the following email address: ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
