Cleanaway contract with The Hills Shire Council begins

Cleanaway has unveiled its new fleet of trucks as it prepares to begin a new 10-year contract with The Hills Shire Council, located in the north west of Sydney.

Outfitted with the latest technology and mechanical advancements, the trucks are expected to release fewer emissions into the environment and are marginally quieter as they navigate the Hills Shire network. They are also fitted with automatic reverse smart sensor brakes and up to seven cameras, with a bird’s eye camera for enhanced safety.

General Manager of the Hills Shire Council, Michael Edgar, said the new fleet were part of Cleanaway’s renewed 10-year contract with the Hills Shire.

“The council is bound to ensure that ratepayers receive the best quality, efficient and effective service and Cleanaway has proved time and again, they are reliable, economical and sustainable,” Mr Edgar said.

Apart from the new trucks, the contract also includes the rollout of new yellow-lidded bins, which have been distributed to most residents excepting those in new release areas.

The new waste contract starts on 1 October, 2017.
