Straight compostable liners for YPO
Straight plc, the environmental products and services group and the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of waste and recycling container solutions, has gained a position on a new four year framework agreement with YPO, the largest public sector buying organisation in the UK, to supply its range of Compost-A-Bag® compostable liners. Straight already features on three other key YPO framework agreements.
YPO customers include public sector authorities, schools, colleges and universities, as well as major local government departments. Framework agreements offer a fully compliant route to market, allowing customers to buy goods without going through the full procurement process required through the Official Journal of the European Union.
The latest four year contract is estimated to be worth between £8m and £12m across the six suppliers who have been appointed to the agreement. Each supply will be awarded by a mini-competition process.
Straight supplies liners both though bespoke manufacture or from its extensive stock holding for immediate dispatch. Liners are manufactured from natural starches and are EN13432 approved. Straight liners are 100% biodegradable and compostable breaking down into water, CO2 and biomass only. They are compatible with the Straight kitchen caddy range and also fit most other caddies available on the market. Bespoke sizes can be supplied on request and these can be customised in different coloursand with individual print details.
Helen Wardman, Category Manager – Waste Management and FM at YPO said:
“We are extremely pleased to see Straight on another key YPO framework agreement and are delighted to offer Straight compostable liners to our customers.”
Jonathan Straight, Chief Executive at Straight plc added:
“We believe that we are the only supplier in the market to be on four YPO framework agreements and we are delighted to be in this position. There are many companies in the compostable liner market. Being one of only a handful to make it onto this key framework is testimony to our dual commitments of quality and value.
