OD/18/89 Garden Waste Mail Shot

We are on a time limited project, I have been instructed by my head of service (HOS) to proceed with a mail short to all of our garden waste customers, the letter informs our customers of the changes in service that will commence on the 1st May 2019. The content of the mail shot has been agreed by the HOS and portfolio holder.


Failure to deliver this mailshot will result in a massive contamination of the garden waste being collected, and will result in the rejection of the material collected. Hefty fines could be applied to IBC due to non-compliance of contract. (E.g contamination levels not to exceed 5%)


Due to the time scales involved I have no other option available.


Three written quotes have already been obtained via IBC’s print room, I have decided to go with the quote that provided best value for money and the print room’s reccomendation.


The mailshot will be sent out week commencing 8 April 2019.


The price of this mailshot will be £17,000.
