Council's new deal will 'virtually end' landfill

Landfill will be drastically cut and millions of pounds saved over the next 25 years after the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead council renegotiated its waste and disposal contracts.

The borough has signed a deal with Covanta Energy to start in April and which will replace Veolia Environmental Services Ltd.

It says the move will result in greener waste disposal and savings of more than £1.5m per year from 2016 for Windsor and Maidenhead residents.

Cllr Phill Bicknell, cabinet member for highways, transport and environment, described the deal as 'an all-round winner'.
