New rub­bish col­lec­tor for homes

Wanneroo Times - - News -

THE City of Joon­dalup’s do­mes­tic rub­bish and re­cy­cling col­lec­tion will look a lit­tle dif­fer­ent this week.

Ef­fec­tive yes­ter­day, the dark blue trucks of SUEZ Re­cy­cling and Re­cov­ery is the City’s do­mes­tic col­lec­tion con­trac­tor.

In Fe­bru­ary, the coun­cil ac­cepted the ten­der from SUEZ to pro­vide the ser­vices for five years, with an op­tion for an­other two.

SUEZ will empty all do­mes­tic waste bins weekly and de­liver the waste to the

com­post­ing plant in Neer­abup.

Re­cy­cling bins will con­tinue to be emp­tied fort­nightly

and ma­te­rial will be de­liv­ered to the Clean­away Ma­te­rial Re­cov­ery Fa­cil­ity in Guild­ford.

SUEZ will also part­ner with the City to roll out the three-bin sys­tem, set to start in Jan­uary 2019, and will ser­vice the new green waste bin on a fort­nightly ba­sis.

Mayor Al­bert Ja­cob said SUEZ was one of Aus­tralia’s lead­ing waste man­age­ment com­pa­nies.

“Their cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy will as­sist the City to main­tain best prac­tice in waste man­age­ment and op­ti­mum ser­vice for our ratepay­ers,” he said.

Joon­dalup Mayor Al­bert Ja­cob with SUEZ state gen­eral man­ager Nial Stock and the new City of Joon­dalup-branded SUEZ trucks at Ocean Reef Boat Har­bour.
