Bega Valley Shire Council recently received a new fleet of Cleanaview-enabled trucks as part of Cleanaway’s five-year contract that began on 1 July 2018.
Also known as the Sapphire Coast, the Bega Valley Shire Council is the largest local government area in coastal New South Wales, with an area of 6,279km2. It extends from Bermagui in the north to the Victorian border in the south and includes the towns of Bega, Tathra, Merimbula, Tura Beach, Wolumla, Cobargo, Bemboka, Pambula, Pambula Beach, Towamba and the former whaling port of Eden.
The new fleet servicing Bega Valley Shire consists of nine vehicles, eight side-loaders outfitted with Cleanaview and one prime mover. With Cleanaview, Cleanaway’s vehicles in Bega Valley now provide near real-time information about its truck locations, allowing it to better manage waste collected in weekly kerbside pickups.
The state-of-the-art Cleanaview technology in the vehicles also makes it easier for Bega Valley Shire Council to monitor and track waste collection issues such as contamination and bin damage. It helps councils answer queries from residents on the status of their bin pickup and be informed when a scheduled job has been completed.
As part of the new contract, a new organics collection service will be introduced in the urban areas of the Shire. Bega’s Food Organics and Green Organics (FOGO) collection will commence on 29 October, enabling residents to recycle their food and garden waste in one bin.
“For Cleanaway, the longevity of our frontline staff has been critical to delivering on our contract,” said Cleanaway Bega Branch Manager Glenn Horswell.
“The Cleanaway Bega team have been wonderful ambassadors to both Cleanaway and the Bega Valley Shire. I am very proud of the professionalism from my team and their ongoing commitment in helping to make a sustainable future possible for Bega.”
