Amey began working for Selby District Council in 2009. The new contract will see services run to 2024.
Last year Amey's 90-strong team in Selby 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 district. In addition, 419,000 m2 of grass is cut regularly.
From 2018 Selby’s residual household waste will also be treated at Amey’s new Allerton Waste Recovery Park facility, developed with North Yorkshire County Council and City of York Council.
Vinci is in the final stages of construction of Allerton Waste Recovery, near Knaresborough, with testing of its mechanical treatment, anaerobic digestion and energy from waste technologies due to commence in the coming weeks. Taylor Woodrow, the civil engineering division of Vinci Construction UK, is responsible for overall site development and civil engineering for the buildings. Vinci Environnement is responsible for designing and commissioning the processes.
The Selby contract is one of more than 15 collection, grounds and street cleaning contracts held by Amey with local authorities across England and Scotland. In addition, Amey has more than 15,000 commercial waste customers and operates or is building four waste treatment facilities.
