Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The addition of a new Schedule to the Services Contract between NYCC and Yorwaste Ltd to deliver the Management and Monitoring of the Closed Landfill Sites.

Reasons for the decision:

• The existing Services Contract between NYCC and Yorwaste Ltd can be varied and a new Closed Landfill Site (CLS) Schedule added;
• There would be a holistic approach to CLS management as opposed to the current arrangement, which is split across three organisations;
• Yorwaste have existing specialist staff undertaking CLS management and monitoring work at Yorwaste Ltd landfill sites, who have the correct skills and experience. NYCC staff do not have a dedicated resource to undertake this work;
• Routine repair and maintenance work that is currently slow to be progressed will be undertaken by Yorwaste Ltd in a timely and cost effective manner;
• NYCC would get better value for money; and
• Yorwaste Ltd are a local company so they can react and travel to sites quickly.
