Starting 1 July 2021, Cleanaway will provide general waste and commingled recycling collection services under a 10-year agreement with Logan City Council.
Logan City Council Mayor Darren Power said in addition to the collection of waste and recycling bins, the new agreement includes options for council to introduce a garden waste bin service and an on-demand bulky waste pick-up service across the city.
“We will be considering these options over the next few months,” he said.
The tender was awarded after a comprehensive evaluation of bids, Power said, conducted under the supervision of an external probity advisor.
According to Cleanaway Solid Waste Services General Manager David Wheeley, the contract will enable 60 new local jobs, with additional opportunities in procurement and supply.
“Cleanaway’s mission is ‘to make a sustainable future possible’ and for us this means taking a leadership role in environmental sustainability, providing sustainable employment for our people and actively supporting the communities we are part of,” he said.
“Our new side-lift collection fleet will be equipped with the Cleanaview, our in-cabin technology which provides real-time data on collection services and enables us to provide support to residents to use our services correctly, reduce contamination and reduce waste to landfill.”
