Hig­gins re­tains land­fill con­tract

CHB Mail - - News -

Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay Dis­trict Coun­cil has awarded op­er­a­tion of its land­fill to ex­ist­ing con­trac­tor Hig­gins Con­tract­ings Lim­ited.

The new con­tract sup­ports the re­cent ap­point­ment of new con­trac­tor Smart En­vi­ron­men­tal Lim­ited for the dis­trict’s kerb­side col­lec­tion and the Dis­trict’s trans­fer sta­tions. Hig­gins has op­er­ated the land­fill since it opened in 1996 and also pro­vides road­ing con­struc­tion from a de­pot in Waipuku­rau.

It is the third ma­jor pro­cure­ment com­pleted by the Dis­trict Coun­cil this year.

Hig­gins man­ager Dick Hu­rae says the com­pany is look­ing for­ward to work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tively with the coun­cil’s re­cently ap­pointed strate­gic con­tract part­ners.

“We are re­ally ex­cited about this op­por­tu­nity,” said Hu­rae.

“We have high ex­pec­ta­tions and look for­ward to work­ing with the lo­cal Hig­gins team to de­liver this step change for the Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay com­mu­nity,” Act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive Doug Tate said.
