In November 2002, Biffa Waste Services and Leicester City Council commenced a 25-year partnership, through a fully integrated waste management contract under the Private Finance Initiative (PFI), forming a new company called ‘Biffa Leicester’.
Together, Biffa Leicester and Leicester City Council are committed to providing a first class waste management service for the residents of Leicester City.
Leicester Waste Collection
Biffa Leicester is responsible for the collection, treatment and disposal of Leicester City’s household waste. Biffa provides a weekly residual waste collection and a weekly recycling collection as well as managing the two recycling centres and the many recycling banks across the city.
Recycling at Leicester
All wheelie bin waste comes to Leicester’s recycling plant, home to Leicester’s advanced waste and recycling facility. Here, all waste gets separated mechanically with the aid of the ‘Ball Mill’.
