We have sought 3 quotes as part of our
procurement process and are recommending to purchase 600 bins from
These were chosen as they provided the best value of the quotes we received and are the supplier of the bins for our last purchase so we are aware of the quality of the bins from experience.
The quote for the bins is £9,660 which equates to £16.10 per unit plus VAT.
As part of the garden waste scheme, we require
a stock of new bins to maintain subscription levels and to enable
us to take on new subscribers, where route capacity allows. We have
managed the stock that we have held since our last purchase by
rolling out additional capacity at a managed rate during the Covid
pandemic. Our stocks of new bins are now depleting and we are
seeking to purchase additional bins with the £10,000 budget
already built into the capital budget.
Consideration was given to whether we could
not purchase bins, however this would mean we could not expand the
garden waste subscriber numbers.
