It could be several months before Auckland Council releases details on the Expressions of Interest process for its two waste sites in the Mahurangi.
A Council spokesperson said she could not confirm how many EOIs had been received for the transfer stations at Lawrie Road in Snells Beach and Rustybrook Road in Wellsford.
“We won’t be able to provide this detail for some time as there is a process Council has to go through,” she said.
Expressions of interest closed on July 24 with the current lease agreements due to expire at the end of September next year. Tenders will be assessed against the objectives of Council’s Waste Management and Minimisation Plan, which include a 30 per cent reduction of waste to landfill by 2027 and zero waste to landfill by 2040.
A shortlist of suppliers was due to be confirmed by August 7 and they will be asked to submit a full proposal by mid-November.
The Lawrie Road station has been run by Northland Waste for the past 20 years.
