Scrap merchants get bid chance from council

LOCAL merchants have been invited to a tender session for a contract to collect scrap metal from Kirklees Council sites.

Firms will be asked to submit prices for the various types of scrap metal, and for options which include collection from council premises and prices for delivery to the bidder’s premises.

A drop-in session is being arranged for Friday October 18 which will allow interested companies to talk to council officials about the potential contract.

Technical officers will be present to explain what the contract involves and those attending will also be able to find out about the tender process which uses the council’s free-to-use electronic portal

The session will be held between 9.30am and 12.30pm on October 18 in the Training Room at Kirkgate Buildings, Byram Street, Huddersfield, HD1 1BY.
