Waste management company, Cleanaway, has been awarded a 10-year collection contract to service New South Wales’ mid north coastal region of Kempsey Shire.
According to local news outlet The Macleay Argus, the Council’s contract – which comes into effect on 1st July – will see Cleanaway establish a local base in the Macleay valley, including a new truck depot and customer service call centre.
The contract could potentially benefit a number of other local businesses, including Scotts Hydraulics, C&G Electrics, Randalls Business Equipment and Beaurepaires.
In addition, Cleanaway’s fleet of garbage trucks will be serviced by local business, Mavin Truck Centre in South Kempsey.
Dean Mavin, dealer principle at Mavin Truck Centre, said the service agreement with Cleanaway to provide maintenance, servicing and urgent repairs would allow the business to look at taking on new employees and training up staff.
“This contract has provided the business confidence to look at possible expansion, an opportunity to upskill our existing team, and a chance to take on new apprentices,” Mavin told The Macleay Argus.
“We’re thrilled to play an important role in servicing the garbage trucks to minimise downtime and disruption, and keep our local waste management services running smoothly.”
NSW Regional Manager of Cleanaway, Michael Biagi, said the company will work closely with the Council and the local community to achieve waste reduction, recycling and composting goals. “We’ve helped regional and metropolitan councils across Australia improve waste management and provide savings for the community and the environment,” he said.
