1. Are you currently in a partnership with other councils for waste IT system operations or procurement? If in a partnership please name the partner councils?

2. Do you currently operate waste services (collections) directly, or through a waste contractor such as Biffa, Suez or Veolia. If through a contractor, please name them.

3. Which of the IT systems below do you use for the management of day to day municipal bin collections:
a. Yotta
b. Bartec Collective
c. AMCS Clear
d. Whitespace/Powersuite
e. Contender/Swift Datapro/Agile

g. Core (Suez)
h. Webaspx
i. Microsoft Excel or similar
j. No IT system
k. Other: [please name]

4. When is your current contract for the IT system OR outsourced waste contract for waste collections management due to expire?

5. Please provide contact information for the service manager responsible for waste collections.

I would like to thank you in advance for your help with this.

Yours faithfully,

Mr D Patrick
