Countrystyle Recycling has been appointed by Commercial Services Kent Ltd (a Kent County Council wholly owned company) as the waste haulage and plant operator for two waste transfer stations in Kent – North Farm at Tunbridge Wells and Dunbrik at Sevenoaks.

The four year contract, worth c. £6 million across the life of the agreement, will commence on 1 April 2015 and run until 30 June 2019. Countrystyle will manage the waste haulage for over 116,000 tonnes of material per year including wood, dry mixed recyclables, green waste, soil and rubble, glass, plasterboard, asbestos and domestic bulky waste.

The materials will be collected by Countrystyle’s own fleet and transported to various treatment and disposal sites including Countrystyle’s own recycling facility in Ridham nr Sittingbourne, licenced to process 245,000 tonnes of waste per annum.

Alan Horton at Commercial Services Kent Ltd, said, “We are pleased to have awarded our waste haulage and plant hire contract to Countrystyle Recycling. Key to the operation of any waste transfer station is the efficiency of the on-site loading and movement of the various waste streams off-site. Commercial Services is certain that Countrystyle is the right operator to provide this efficient level of service given their reputation for delivery in the market.

Countrystyle’s Managing Director, Chris Howard, said, “We are delighted to have been selected by Commercial Services Kent in relation to these key collection facilities. This win demonstrates Countrystyle’s continued ability to provide professional, reliable and cost effective solutions across the spectrum of collection and treatment services.”
