Approval for the Procurement of Garden Waste Collection Service Permits

Decision Maker: Executive Member (Resources)

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Decision made:


That the Executive Member approves the direct award for the garden waste subscription permits.


That the contract is shared between South Ribble Council and Chorley Council, with each council only paying for the number of permits processed.


Reasons for decision:


Following negotiations, the Council is comfortable best value for money is being achieved.


They are the incumbent supplier for garden waste subscription permits. To ensure continued service to residents it is recommended that the existing contract is renewed.


Other options considered and rejected:


Chorley Council could tender for a new garden waste subscription permit service. However, as the council have undertaken significant integration work with existing systems this is not recommended. This is to ensure continuity of service and minimal disruption to residents.


The bespoke nature and specific requirements of the service being procured means alternative suppliers cannot match the required service specification.
