Four new Cleanaway trucks in Burdekin

Cleanaway has taken delivery of four brand new trucks for an eight-year contract to carry out kerbside collections in the northern Queensland area of Burdekin.

Cleanaway Regional Manager of Solid Waste Services, Chris Ashton, said the Burdekin fleet comprises two new general waste trucks, a recycling vehicle and a green waste vehicle.

The vehicles were presented to Burdekin Mayor, Lyn McLaughlin, and are co-branded with Cleanaway and Burdekin Shire Council livery.

“All are brand new and fitted with the latest technology to ensure maximum efficiency of service to the Burdekin community,” Ashton said.

Ashton said Cleanaway was excited to be expanding its operations to service the Burdekin Shire local government area.

“The awarding of the Burdekin contract allows Cleanaway to display its proud history and presents an opportunity to support Burdekin Shire Council towards growing and maintaining a sustainable future.

“We take very seriously the responsibility that’s been afforded to us to maintain what is a very important service to the community,” he said.

“The commencement of this contract will in no way affect the services residents currently receive. There is also no change to the majority of drivers in the team.”

In addition to providing a competitive contract, Cleanaway has committed to supporting the local community by utilising local content for ongoing labour, maintenance and fuel requirements. It said 75 per cent of the incumbent direct labour operators have joined Cleanaway in full-time employment.

“We are committed to maintaining a positive, strategic partnership with Burdekin Shire Council for the life of the contract,” Chris said.

Burdekin Shire Council is an exciting addition in regional Queensland with the total number of municipal contracts from Noosa to Port Douglas now standing at eight.
