Utility company SUEZ has been awarded a seven-year waste collections contract for the City of Parramatta.

Set to commence on 6 November, the multimillion-dollar contract will see SUEZ’s fleet of 33 waste and recycling trucks provide general waste collections as well as the processing and composting of organics to the City of Parramatta’s 230,000 residents across 76,000 households. The contract will cover general waste, recycling, garden organics and hard waste services across the council area.

“We are excited to introduce SUEZ’s services to the City of Parramatta and we look forward to working towards providing resource recovery solutions from waste collection through to the processing and composting of garden organics,” said John Hassett, SUEZ state general manager NSW & SA.

“We’ll be investing in 33 brand new Mercedes trucks with Euro 6 emission standards.

“Our real-time reporting system and onboard computing system will also provide council with access to detailed information such as GPS tracking, including maps of streets awaiting to be serviced.”

Administrator for City of Parramatta Amanda Chadwick said the council will be working with SUEZ to achieve combined resource recovery goals, stating, “The City of Parramatta is committed to delivering great customer service and sustainable resource recovery outcomes to meet our target of 70% diversion of waste from landfill by 2018.

“We look forward to SUEZ’s contribution in providing essential waste management services to our residents and their contribution in meeting our resource recovery goals,” Chadwick said.
