New con­trac­tor for rub­bish takes over

CHB Mail - - News -

Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay has a new con­trac­tor look­ing after your rub­bish col­lec­tion and dis­posal.

The CHB Dis­trict Coun­cil has awarded a new con­tract for the de­liv­ery of its Solid Waste Services to Smart En­vi­ron­men­tal Lim­ited.

The coun­cil says the new con­trac­tor, re­spon­si­ble for kerb­side col­lec­tion of rub­bish and re­cy­cling, along with the op­er­a­tion of the dis­trict’s trans­fer sta­tions, is a fur­ther en­hance­ment to sup­port the surge of pos­i­tiv­ity, growth and de­vel­op­ment that CHB is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing.

Smart En­vi­ron­men­tal Lim­ited is a recog­nised leader in the New Zealand re­cy­cling in­dus­try, with more than 400 staff de­liv­er­ing waste and re­cy­cling services through­out New Zealand, with strong busi­ness val­ues of part­ner­ship, trust and per­for­mance.

The coun­cil says award­ing of the con­tract comes after a com­pet­i­tive, com­pre­hen­sive and ro­bust process to find a con­trac­tor for a term of up to 11 years.

It is the sec­ond of two ma­jor pro­cure­ments com­pleted by the Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay Dis­trict Coun­cil, fol­low­ing the award­ing of a new con­tract for its Three Wa­ters and Open Spa­ces Main­te­nance Services in July. Coun­cil unan­i­mously ap­proved a re­port to award Smart En­vi­ron­men­tal the Con­tract at an ex­tra­or­di­nary coun­cil meet­ing held Septem­ber 27.

“This new con­tract rep­re­sents a fur­ther strate­gic part­ner­ship that will be a cor­ner­stone in sup­port­ing the con­tin­u­ing trans­for­ma­tion and lift in the over­all per­for­mance of Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay Dis­trict Coun­cil,” says chief ex­ec­u­tive Monique David­son.

The new strate­gic part­ner­ship pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for coun­cil and the com­mu­nity to re­con­sider its en­vi­ron­men­tal re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and ways of man­ag­ing waste now and into the fu­ture, through projects and a fur­ther re­view of its Solid Waste Man­age­ment and Min­imi­sa­tion Plan (SWMMP).

Smart En­vi­ron­men­tal will be­gin services in Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay on Oc­to­ber 20 — ear­lier than an­tic­i­pated, with the in­cum­bent con­trac­tor giv­ing no­tice to coun­cil that it will end its services on Oc­to­ber 19.
