Noosa Council announced last month that Cleanaway has secured the Noosa collections, landfill and transfer station contract for 2017-2024.
Cleanaway will implement a new three bin collection service under the seven year agreement to single domestic dwellings across the urban areas of the Noosa region, as well as enhanced recycling initiatives and a greater range of bin sizes for waste and recycling collections.
Noosa Council said the Council was impressed with the range of competitive and innovative bids, but that Cleanaway’s proposal offered the greatest overall advantage for the Council’s objectives.
“Cleanaway has a known track record of providing a high standard of service to the Noosa community and this third consecutive contract is recognition of that service,” said Wayne Schafer, Noosa Council’s Waste and Environmental Health Manager.
Anthony Wetherspoon, the Manager for the Noosa area said Cleanaway will be working closely with Noosa Council to improve recovery and reuse of items. “From our bulk kerbside collection service, to improving landfill management and recovering a greater range of materials at the resource recovery facility, we’ll be supporting the community to achieve their waste reduction and recycling goals.”
“Cleanaway has a long and proud history of providing services to the Noosa Council and we look forward to the next seven years working closely with the Council’s waste management team to enhance services and increase waste diversion from landfill,” said Neil Perry, General Manager, Queensland.
The contract comes into effect from Friday 1 September, 2017, and covers collection of solid waste, recyclables and garden waste, management of the Eumundi Road Landfill and adjoining resource recovery facility.
