Resource Recovery Solutions (Derbyshire) Ltd (RRS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Shanks Group plc, has signed a waste management contract with Derby City Council and Derbyshire County Council.
This 27 year contract, which started operations on 1st April 2010, involves RRS managing municipal waste produced in Derby and Derbyshire and developing new facilities across Derby and Derbyshire bringing a number of benefits. These facilities will allow RRS to deal with municipal waste in Derby and Derbyshire sustainably and in accordance with the waste hierarchy – encouraging minimisation of waste, increasing materials recovered for recycling, before generating energy from the remaining waste and so diverting waste from landfill.
This contract is part of Derby City Council and Derbyshire County Council strategy for dealing with waste more sustainably. For further information on the Councils approach click here for Derbyshire County Council and here for Derby City Council.
