Lincolnshire County Council's Separated Paper and Card Recycling Contract

Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) is procuring a contract for the collection, haulage and recycling of paper and cardboard. LCC is implementing the separation of paper and cardboard from household recycling in a phased approach over a four year period. This will start with Boston Borough Council in Spring 2021 and it is expected that each of the districts will be rolled out in approximately 6 monthly intervals following this. Alongside the collection of separated at source collections of paper and cardboard the Council is also planning a robust programme of engagement and communication with residents. The paper and cardboard will be presented loose (i.e. it will not be baled).
The contract term is 4 years with 2 further options to extend for 2 years to a maximum term of 8 years.
