Refuse Vehicle Procurement

24/08/2023 - Vehicle Replacement Programme for 2024/25

Decision:

1.     That the programme of replacement vehicles for 2024-25 be approved, and that the sum of £2.15m be moved from the provisional capital programme to the approved capital programme.

 

2.     That authority be delegated to the Executive Head of Environmental Services to carry out a compliant procurement process, award the contracts to the successful tenderers, and, in consultation with the Executive Head of Legal & Democratic Services and the Lead Councillor, enter into the relevant contracts.

Reason:

To allow for the replacement of the waste and garden waste vehicles in 2024.

Other options considered and rejected by the Executive:

To further delay replacement or further investigate viable alternative propulsion, such as EV or hydrogen; however, this would result in delays and increased service reliability risks.

Any conflicts of interest declared:

None.
