APSE Framework

The Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE) / Liverpool Underground Refuse Solutions Framework is a comprehensive procurement initiative designed to enhance waste management practices for UK local authorities. The framework is not limited to Liverpool; any local authority can join and benefit from it.

The four-part framework details specific aspects of waste management.

Lot 1: the supply of underground refuse systems

Lot 1 focuses on procuring innovative underground refuse systems that improve the efficiency and sustainability of waste collection and disposal. It aims to reduce the amount of waste in landfill and improve the overall environmental impact of associated management practices.

Lot 2: the supply of technology associated with URS

This lot includes acquiring sensors, monitoring systems and associated software that support the efficient operation of the underground refuse systems. By using advanced technology, local authorities can optimise waste collection and reduce the cost of management practices.

Lot 3: the supply of vehicles associated with URS

Lot 3 is concerned with obtaining specialised vehicles for collecting and transporting waste from the underground refuse systems. By using these vehicles, local authorities can improve the efficiency of their collections and reduce the environmental impact of transporting waste.

Lot 4: the service and maintenance of URS

The fourth lot is about securing maintenance and service contracts to ensure that the underground refuse systems continue to operate efficiently over time. Proper maintenance ensures the longevity of the systems and reduces the need for costly repairs or replacements.

RSK-IWS is the winning bidder of all four lots. We are committed to providing high-quality and sustainable waste management solutions that meet the needs of local authorities, thus helping to reduce waste and improve the overall environmental impact of associated management practices.
