WRAP is undertaking its eleventh annual gate fees survey, which investigates gate fees paid at waste treatment facilities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. As before, the key aim of the study is to increase transparency in the waste treatment market. By giving local facility operators better information on market prices for different services, this should help improve the efficiency of the procurement and provision of waste management services in the UK.
Anthesis has been commissioned by WRAP to deliver this year’s gate fees survey and will be responsible for all communications relating to the study.
The operators section of the survey is particularly aimed at companies operating organic waste recycling facilities, specifically anaerobic digestion and in-vessel composting. WRAP realise that facility operators are subjected to a large number of requests for information, and have endeavoured to minimise the length of the survey to make the process as efficient as possible. WRAP stipulate that all information received through the survey is aggregated, and no data presented in the report will be associated with any specific waste management company, customer or local authority. The confidentiality of all respondents is therefore guaranteed, and has always been a top priority in all of WRAP’s previous gate fee surveys.
The surveys have now been launched online, and WRAP are asking participants to complete the surveys by Friday, 5th January 2018. The survey forms can be accessed through the following links:
