Big Wheels Keep on Rolling

Lancashire County Council (LCC) has awarded Neales Waste Management a two year contract extension to manage two of the county’s waste transfer stations.

Under the terms of the extension Neales will continue to manage and operate both Preston and Middleton waste transfer stations on behalf of LCC. Each facility processes between 50,000 to 60,000 tonnes of general household waste and recycling a year. Over the course of the contract, Neales has been challenged to deliver up to £1 million of savings through improved efficiency and materials management.
