Under a deal that could last up to three years, Countrystyle, based in Lenham, will collect and treat approximately 30,000 tonnes of green waste and mixed food/green waste from three of the county’s four district councils.
Countrystyle will also provide bulking services and haulage of all materials to treatment facilities using its own fleet of branded vehicles.
The organic waste will be treated at Countrystyle’s composting facility in Ridham and Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire. It will be processed into a certified compost product which will be used by farmers as an organic fertiliser to improve agricultural lands.
Chris Howard, Countrystyle’s commercial director, said “We are delighted to be working with Buckinghamshire County Council. This is a great honour for us and demonstrates our continued ability to provide professional, reliable and cost effective biowaste treatment solutions for local authorities.”
Lesley Clarke, Buckinghamshire County Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “The services provided by Countrystyle will help us deliver sustainable and value for money solutions, which will drive up the County’s composting and recycling performance.”
