Brief Description of Decision:



SJB (the commercial arm of Yorwaste), advised the council in mid-2019 that they would be unable to continue with the current contract after 31.03.2020. This resulted in the need for a replacement tender exercise to ensure continuation of the now payable garden waste service via a compliant route to market.


After a full YORtender (ref  DN429887) procurement and evaluation exercise the successful bidder was Biowise Limited T/A Wastewise. The contract is to commence on 1 April 2020


The successful bidder will have a delivery point in RMBC and could create up to 1 FTE post. Also there is potential for compost produced to be used in RMBC.


It is a compliant framework agreement for up to 5 years utilising a transfer site, within the Rotherham Borough with the facility for Doncaster and Barnsley Councils to opt-in if they chose to do so. 

Reasons for the Decision:




The result of a competitive procurement procedure.

The procedure was undertaken as an Open Tender exercise which was conducted in line with the Public Contract Regulations 2015 and the Council’s own Financial and Procurement Procedure Rules.
