SUEZ has retained the contract to provide waste collection services to Brisbane City Council for the next 16 years.
The new contract will commence on 1 July 2018 and is valued at approximately $900million.
Mark Venhoek, CEO of SUEZ in Australia & New Zealand said SUEZ has been and will continue to provide general, recycling and green waste collections to 1.2 million local residents in the greater Brisbane area.
“Brisbane City Council’s waste collection operation is the largest in Australia, providing services to households from multi-unit dwellings through to rural properties in the outer suburbs as well as Council parks and street litter bins across the city,” said Mr Venhoek.
“We look forward to our ongoing partnership with Brisbane City Council and providing a safe, reliable and efficient collection service to one of Australia’s fastest growing capital cities. It takes a team of 180 people to provide more than 125,000 waste collection services every day and we’re proud to continue this work,” he said.
SUEZ will invest more than $50million into new equipment including 150 new collection vehicles. The vehicles will feature innovative on-board computing technology which will provide Council with the real-time tracking of vehicles, collections and access to detailed service information the services being provided to residents.
