Cromwell Polythene has been awarded a significant contract to supply Enfield Council with up to four million waste and recycling bags and sacks.
Tendered through the Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO) framework, the two-year contract, with an option to extend for a further two-years, is for the supply of grey sacks for domestic refuse and blue recycling sacks, all made to the Council’s exacting quality standard. The sacks, which are used by households who do not fit the criteria for a wheeled bin, have been manufactured to Enfield Council’s specific requirements.
In addition to matching the exact colours the council has used in the past, so as to avoid any potential confusion among residents, Cromwell had to supply an opaque grey refuse sack to help preserve householder confidentiality, while the blue recycling sacks are transparent enough to allow collectors to verify the contents. Enfield residents commingle paper and board, glass bottles and jars, food and drink cans, plastic bottles and packaging, drink cartons and empty aerosols – all sorted at the Biffa MRF in Edmonton, north London.
