Selby District Council has extended an agreement with its waste collection contractor for a further seven years.

Household waste from the district's 38,500 homes will continue to be collected by Amey until 2023. The company will also continue to deliver grounds maintenance and street cleaning for the authority under the same deal.

Amey’s environmental services managing director, Rob Edmondson, said, “We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Selby, which began in 2009. 

“We make nearly three million collections on behalf of the council every year, with a fantastic record in delivering efficient services. In fact, only 0.02% of bins and boxes are missed in an annual period, demonstrating the local knowledge and commitment of our crews.”  

In 2016 Amey’s 90-strong team collected 21,500 tonnes of household waste, with an additional 6,300 tonnes of paper, card, plastic, glass and cans and 9,500 tonnes of green waste across the Selby district. 

In addition, 419,000sqm of grass is cut regularly and over a 600 litter and dog bins emptied every week. 

From 2018 Selby’s residual household waste will also be treated at Amey’s Allerton Waste Recovery Park facility in North Yorkshire. The new, state-of-the-art facility is being developed with North Yorkshire County Council and City of York Council and will deal with waste from all eight collection authorities in the county.

Allerton Waste Recovery Park is in the final stages of construction, with testing of its mechanical treatment, anaerobic digestion and energy from waste technologies due to commence in the coming weeks.
