New rubbish collector for homes
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.
