CCC has an existing MRF contract for the pre-treatment/pre-sort and reuse/sale of recyclate materials via a third party MRF facility which is due to expire in September 2019. This contract includes MRF processing and bulking and haulage Shortly, CCC will go out to market to separately procure an interim solution post September 2019 while the Council develops its longer-term solution.
