Cleanaway waste management fleet arrives on the Central Coast
Friday, 02 February, 2018
A fleet of 72 brand new waste and recycling collection trucks from Cleanaway has rolled into the Central Coast Council as part of a 10-year contract to deliver essential waste management collection services to the area, with service beginning from 1 February.
Under the 10-year agreement, Cleanaway will be delivering general waste, recycling and green waste collection services as well as six free kerbside bulk waste collection services per year for each residence. The company will also be rolling out 65,000 new 140 L bins across the council.
Central Coast Council residents have been told they can expect minimal disruption from the change as many of the team members from the previous supplier have joined the Cleanaway team. The 1Coast website and phone number will also stay the same, serviced by a dedicated call centre working out of a purpose-built facility based on the Central Coast.
The new fleet is fully equipped with Cleanaway’s Cleanaview system, providing near-real-time service information that allows for single-call customer service response and insights that will reduce contamination and improve recycling.
“We’re excited about getting started on the Central Coast after a period of extensive pre-contract preparation,” said Michael Sankey, regional manager – Sydney Municipal. “It’s fostered a great working relationship and we’re looking forward to partnering with Central Coast Council to deliver a premium service for the next 10 years.”
To help residents get to know Cleanaway and what to expect from the new contract, Cleanaway and Central Coast Council have produced two short films, the first of which can be viewed below.
