Newtownabbey Borough Council is considered to be one of Northern Ireland’s most progressive and innovative Councils particularly in the field of waste management. It was the first Council in the UK to introduce wheelie bins and has continually sought new ideas and methods of working.
The Council strives to continually improve its services in a cost effective manner and accordingly are embarking on a series of projects and initiatives aimed at providing improvements to its municipal waste service.
• The rationalisation of its logistic arrangements associated with waste collection
• The introduction of pilot schemes relating to collection methods, processes and measures
• Widening of the consideration of options dealing with residual waste to include disposal and/or recovery methods
To facilitate this approach, the Council is seeking a short term landfill service for a period of 6 months.
