7 Current Waste Management Structure Each of the WCAs are responsible for collecting residual waste and recyclables from households, and where requested commercial properties. Private contractors e.g. ONYX, SITA and BIFFA also collect waste from commercial properties separately ESCC are responsible for arranging for the disposal of the waste collected by the WCAs, they are the Waste Disposal Authority (WDA) The WCAs are responsible for disposing of the recyclables collected, unless they ask the WDA to arrange for disposal The existing disposal routes are projected to be full between 2007 and 2009 A new waste management solution is required

Arranging for collection, sorting and marketing of Recycling collected from households Managing old landfill sitesStreet and beach Cleansing Raising waste awareness and education Providing on street recycling facilities Procuring Disposal ContractsProcuring collection contracts and goods and services

9 The Requirements of the Integrated Waste Management Services Contract (IWMSC): A solution that will meet long term Government targets EU Landfill Directive/LATs UK Recycling Targets Manage the 14 Household Waste Recycling Sites A solution that will make Expensive Recovery technology affordable Flexibility to use new technologies when proven Leave open options for recycling and composting Flexibility to accommodate waste growth Provide facilities to deal with between 300,000 and 550,000 tonnes per year Alternative to landfill for the long term

10 Landfill/Landraise Void space required by ESCC and B & HCC over first quarter of 21st Century

11 Procuring the IWMSC IWMSC advertised in OJEC (Official Journal of the European community): 1999 Invitation to tender (ITT) offered to 11 companies: companies (ONYX-Aurora, Biffa, VIRIDOR-TIRU, SITA, Waste Recycling Group, United Waste) invited to Tender: 2000 Two companies ONYX-Aurora, VIRIDOR-TIRU asked to submit Best and Final Offers (BAFO): 2001 ONYX-Aurora appointed Preferred tenderer Sept 2002 Contract Signed 31st March 2003 with ONYX SOUTH DOWNS WASTE SERVICES Ltd a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), worth £1,000,000,000 over 25 years Contract Management team appointed May 2003

13 The Landfill Directive Targets and whether the Contract will meet them under their current proposals

14 Funding and Managing the IWMSC Funding Special Grant derived from £49m PFI credit Shared income from recycled materials Existing disposal budgets Savings in budget as a result of new facilities e.g. transfer stations Management ESCC lead authority There is a formal Joint Working Arrangement between B&HCC and ESCC Team of 2 8 working in IWMSC Contract Management 9 working in waste Awareness and Education 3 working in Environmental Management Current budget of ~ £15,000,000 per annum
