The Contractor will be required to provide collection point bins, containers, skips etc. that are suitably marked and signed etc. 2.

Confidential waste will need to be signed for by the nominated Contractor's staff at the point of collection, and the Contractor staff member shall further indicate on each disposal, that it has been adequately destroyed. All Contractor's staff engaged in the disposal of confidential waste must be security cleared to an appropriate level and the Contractor shall be responsible for ensuring that only those staff appropriately cleared have any access whatsoever to confidential waste and that all confidential waste is disposed of in line with current legislation. 3. Recycled Waste The Contractor will be responsible for recycling, as a minimum, paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and cans, although, the Contractor will be required to increase the percentage and range of goods that are recycled with "energy recovery" being the last disposal option by the Contractor.
