SUEZ Australia Adelaide

French waste and recycling firm, SUEZ, has secured an AU$8 million per year kerbside collection contract by the Northern Adelaide Waste Management Authority (NAWMA) in South Australia.

The company said that the new eight year contract will commence in March 2017 and will include investment in new Compress Natural Gas (CNG) refuse collection vehicles.

NAWMA coordinates the kerbside waste management collections for the Cities of Salisbury and Playford along with the Town of Gawler. SUEZ said that the new agreement will see it continue to service over 115,000 households throughout Adelaide’s Northern Council areas.

“SUEZ will be investing in a new fleet of next generation Compressed Natural Gas trucks which are not only quieter but significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 20%,” commented SUEZ’s general manager of collections for New South Wales & South Australia, John Hassett,.

He added that the new contract will see SUEA continue its 20 year working partnership with NAWMA to provide a local waste management solution in a community.

“Our focus on employing locals and contributing to the local economy will continue. More than 90% of our employees reside within the local council areas,” concluded Hassett.
