Norfolk County Council is set to approve a new six-year waste management deal with Veolia, worth £102m.

If approved, the contract would save the council £2m and 47,000 tonnes of carbon a year.

It would mean that no waste from residents would be sent directly to landfill, and all left-over waste being used to generate energy.

Cllr Andy Grant, Norfolk County Council's cabinet member for environment and waste, said: 'This deal is a win-win for taxpayers and the environment – saving £2m and 47,000 tonnes of carbon per year, by avoiding the need to dump waste in landfill sites.'

The report says: 'The new contract would deliver additional recycling, provide a service based on zero waste direct to landfill, deliver improved value for money and savings of £2m a year, and achieve significant carbon savings compared to landfill by using rubbish as a fuel in incinerators to generate energy within the United Kingdom.'
