Suez to buy 180 trucks for new waste contracts

Waste management company, SUEZ, will be investing in a fleet of 33 new Euro VI Mercedes-Benz waste and recycling trucks for a new contract in Sydney, plus 150 new vehicles for a renewed contract in Brisbane.

The seven-year contract with City of Parramatta begins in November and will include the collection of general waste, recycling, garden organics and hard waste services across the council area.

John Hassett, SUEZ State General Manager NSW & SA, said SUEZ is looking forward to partnering with the City of Parramatta and providing a local waste management solution to a community that cares about its impact on the environment.

“Our real time reporting system and on-board computing system will also provide Council with access to detailed information such as GPS tracking, including maps of streets awaiting to be serviced," Hassett said.

SUEZ has also re-signed a contract with Brisbane City Council until 2033 worth $900 million, which will see it invest more than $50 million into new equipment, including 150 new collection vehicles.

The vehicles will reportedly feature on-board computing technology, which will provide Council with the real-time tracking of vehicles, collections and access to detailed service information on the services being provided to residents.

Mark Venhoek, CEO of SUEZ in Australia & New Zealand said SUEZ has been and will continue to provide general, recycling and green waste collections to 1.2 million local residents in the greater Brisbane area.

“Brisbane City Council’s waste collection operation is the largest in Australia, providing services to households from multi-unit dwellings through to rural properties in the outer suburbs as well as Council parks and street litter bins across the city,” said Venhoek.

“We look forward to our ongoing partnership with Brisbane City Council and providing a safe, reliable and efficient collection service to one of Australia’s fastest growing capital cities. It takes a team of 180 people to provide more than 125,000 waste collection services every day and we’re proud to continue this work,” he said.
