Allerdale reward a waste and recycling collection contract to FCC Environment and Whitespace Work Software


Whitespace Work Software Ltd is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a Waste and Recycling Collections Contract with FCC Environment to support their services at Allerdale.

The new collection contract, due to commence on 1 April 2019, will see FCC deliver Municipal and Commercial Waste Collection Services, for which Whitespace will provide the software infrastructure to help FCC and the Council to manage their services effectively.

The Organisation

Allerdale is a Borough of Cumbria based in Workington. The Borough has a population of 93,492.

The Challenge

FCC have held the Waste and Recycling Collections Contract with Allerdale since 1996 . After a tender process, the new contract, which has been valued at £22 million, has been awarded to FCC Environment. The contract is estimated to save council tax payers over £7.5 million over its eight year duration.

The Solution

FCC Environment is one of the UK’s leading waste and resource management companies. Their approach is to minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill by transforming it into valuable resources wherever possible.

Whitespace’s products have already been implemented in several of FCC’s operations across the UK, including Hereford, Market Harborough, South Ribble, Wychavon, Chorley and many more.

The implementation at Allerdale will see FCC provide Whitespace Municipal, to meet the Back Office requirements for the management of household waste collections along with Whitespace Mobile and Whitespace Analytics. We will also be implementing Whitespace Telematics.
