SUEZ pursues its development in Australia with renewal of Brisbane contract
The Brisbane City Council has recently awarded SUEZ the renewal of the general, recycling and green waste collection contract for the entire city. The Group will provide 150 new collection vehicles featuring innovative on-board computing technology which will provide the Council with the real-time tracking of vehicles, collections and access to detailed service information on the services being provided to residents. 180 employees will be mobilized to provide more than 125,000 waste collection services every day. The new 600 million euro contract will begin on 1st July 2018 for 16 years.
The Group also won the waste collection and recovery 7-year contract of the City of Parramatta, located in the Sydney metropolitan area. SUEZ will be in charge of the collection of general waste, recycling, garden organics, and hard waste of Parramatta’s 230,000 residents. The Group will provide a new fleet of 33 vehicles equipped with on-board computing system, thus allowing the municipality access to detailed information in real time.
SUEZ will also process and recover garden organic waste of the municipality into standardised compost, thus creating a local circular economy loop and supporting the municipality in meeting its target of 70% diversion of waste from landfill by 2018.
With these new contracts, SUEZ is pursuing its development in sustainable waste management in Australia, where the company already collects 2.2 million tonnes of waste every year from 4 million residents and industrial and commercial clients.
