Cleanaway has won the largest municipal contract ever awarded in South Australia, with the company to provide end-to-end waste management service to City of Port Adelaide Enfield, City of Marion, City of Adelaide and City of Charles Sturt.
Under the comprehensive waste services contract, Cleanaway will be providing kerbside waste, recycling and organics collections out of our Port Adelaide and Lonsdale depots while residual waste will be processed at Wingfield Resource Recovery Facility and Inkerman Landfill.
Servicing more than 160,000 residents, Cleanaway will invest in around 30 new staff and more than 40 fleet assets.
General manager solid waste services, Conan Hookings, said Cleanaway will be using new technologies to offer the highest level of service to residents and councils.
“Our brand new collection fleet will be equipped with the Cleanaview fleet management system which provides real-time data on collection services, enabling an online portal for residents to make requests and queries.”
The seven plus three years contract also includes bulk bin, hard waste and street litter collection and processing.
Electric collections vehicles are also set to be trialed in selected council areas.
These zero emissions trucks were rolled out in Victoria and Western Australia, reducing carbon footprint and noise levels on the road without impacting service levels.
The new kerbside collection service will begin in Marion and Port Adelaide Enfield on 1 May 2020, followed by Adelaide City Council in 1 July 2020. Services in Charles Sturt will be rolled out in 1 May 2021.
