Issued by City of York Council

A report will be taken to Cabinet on Tuesday 1 October asking members to recommend the continuation of the contract between North Yorkshire County Council and Amey Cespa regarding the long term waste service for York.

Approval will help determine the next steps to be followed regarding the long term waste contract. Under the current contractual arrangements, a decision is required on the options available by York and North Yorkshire authorities.

Roger Ranson, assistant director of City & Environmental Services at City of York Council, said: “A report will be taken to Cabinet on 1 October which will recommend the continuation of the contract between North Yorkshire County Council and Amey Cespa regarding the long term waste service for York.

“Due to the planning status of the Allerton Waste Recovery Park (AWRP), a decision is required on the options available by York and North Yorkshire authorities. Officers believe the Allerton Waste Recovery Park (AWRP) continues to be viable in planning terms.

“In the absence of an agreement between NYCC and Amey Cespa, terminating the contract would cost the authorities £3million, as well as writing off the money spent thus far.

“Work is continuing to move this project forward towards financial close and at that time a decision will be required by the council.”
