May Gurney wins environmental jobs worth £60m

May Gurney has won two new long-term front-line environmental services contracts with a combined value of up to £60 million.

Under a new contract with North Yorkshire County Council, May Gurney will manage 17 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs). The contract is for seven years, with a possible extension of a further three years, and valued at up to £24 million.

The new long-term waste and recycling collections contract for West Oxfordshire District Council will start in the Autumn for an initial period of seven years, with a possible extension of a further seven years, and is valued at up to £36 million.

May Gurney chief executive Philip Fellowes-Prynne said: “May Gurney continues to consolidate its position as one of the UK’s key providers of front-line services in the municipal waste market.

“These new contracts support the council’s sustainability targets by helping residents to recycle more and by reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.

“Our proven expertise in developing and delivering complex front-line service solutions and supporting our clients’ efficiency goals underpins our continued growth.”
