December 16, 2016 — On Thursday 15 December, Noosa Council announced that Cleanaway has successfully secured the Noosa collections, landfill and transfer station contract for 2017-2024.
Under the seven year agreement, Cleanaway will implement a new three bin collection service to single domestic dwellings across the urban areas of the Noosa region, enhanced recycling initiatives and a greater range of bin sizes for waste and recycling collections.
Noosa Council said they were impressed with the range of competitive and innovative bids but that Cleanaway’s proposal offered the greatest overall advantage for the Council’s objectives. Wayne Schafer, Noosa Council’s Waste and Environmental Health Manager said, “Cleanaway has a known track record of providing a high standard of service to the Noosa community and this third consecutive contract is recognition of that service.”
Anthony Wetherspoon, the Manager for the Noosa area said Cleanaway will be working closely with Noosa Council to improve recovery and reuse of items. “From our bulk kerbside collection service, to improving landfill management and recovering a greater range of materials at the resource recovery facility, we’ll be supporting the community to achieve their waste reduction and recycling goals.”
Neil Perry, General Manager – Queensland, said it was a great result for Cleanaway and the Noosa community. “Cleanaway has a long and proud history of providing services to the Noosa Council and we look forward to the next 7 years working closely with the Council’s waste management team to enhance services and increase waste diversion from landfill.”
The contract comes into effect from Friday 1 September, 2017, and covers collection of solid waste, recyclables and garden waste, management of the Eumundi Road Landfill and adjoining resource recovery facility.
