SUEZ has retained its waste collection services contract with Brisbane City Council until 2033.
The $900 million contract will commence on 1 July 2018.
Mark Venhoek, CEO of SUEZ in Australia & New Zealand said SUEZ has been and will continue to provide general, recycling and green waste collections to 1.2 million local residents in the greater Brisbane area.
“Brisbane City Council’s waste collection operation is the largest in Australia, providing services to households from multi-unit dwellings through to rural properties in the outer suburbs as well as Council parks and street litter bins across the city,” said Mr Venhoek.
“We look forward to our ongoing partnership with Brisbane City Council and providing a safe, reliable and efficient collection service to one of Australia’s fastest growing capital cities. It takes a team of 180 people to provide more than 125,000 waste collection services every day and we’re proud to continue this work,” he said.
SUEZ said it will invest more than $50 million into new equipment, including 150 new collection vehicles. The vehicles will feature on-board computing technology, which will provide Council with the real-time tracking of vehicles, collections and access to detailed service information on the services being provided to residents.
