The Northern Adelaide Waste Management Authority (NAWMA) has renewed its contract with SUEZ for kerbside collections.
The new eight-year contract, announced on 21 December 2015, will commence in March 2017 and is valued at around $8 million a year.
NAWMA coordinates the kerbside waste management collections for the cities of Salisbury and Playford and the town of Gawler. The new agreement will see SUEZ maintain its service to more than 115,000 households throughout Adelaide’s Northern Council areas.
John Hassett, SUEZ General Manager of Collections for New South Wales & South Australia, said the company welcomed the continuation of its 20-year working partnership with NAWMA.
Commenting on its provision of a local waste management solution “in a community that cares about its impact on the environment”, Mr Hassett added: “SUEZ will be investing in a new fleet of next generation compressed natural gas trucks which are not only quieter but significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 20%.”
