Sita wins £1bn Merseyside waste bid

SIta has won out over rivals Covanta as the preferred bidder for a Merseyside PFI waste contract

Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority has named a consortium led by Sita as its preferred bidder for a £1.18bn contract.

On offer was a 30-year Merseyside and Halton Waste Partnership contract to treat 430,000 tonnes of residual municipal waste each year

Sita’s successful bid was accepted by the partnership over a rival proposal by Covanta to treat waste at Ince Marshes, Cheshire.

Sita’s plan is to move the waste by rail from Merseyside to fuel a purpose-built energy-from-waste plant on Teesside. The new plant will be built on a site near Redcar site owned by Sembcorp, a partner in the consortium.
