The Waste Management / Recycling Private Finance Initiative (PFI) project delivered an innovative waste management solution on two main issues: firstly, improved value for money for the Council; and secondly to meet the EU biodegradable landfill diversion targets. This has enabled the Council to move from twenty ninth in 2004/05 up to the fourth highest performing Council for the diversion of waste from landfill in 2008/09. As a result the Council is the most improved in this area in 2008/09 and has met the 2013 landfill directive targets four years ahead of schedule. The additional cost to the Council for the transfer of risk to the private sector, increased landfill diversion performance and environmental protection including £35M of capital investment is £250K / year.
