Urbaser wins waste contract

East and North Herts district councils have awarded their new joint waste and street cleansing services contract to Urbaser Ltd.

The seven-year contract is due to start in May 2018 with an option for a seven-year extension.

Urbaser's vehicles incorporate modern technology giving frontline staff access to the latest service information. GPS, mobile and WiFi technology will support crews in the field with real time messaging, reporting and event logging.

The new collection vehicles will also be fitted with CCTV systems to protect crews.

Graham McAndrew, executive member for environment and public space, said: "We're pleased with the outcome of our joint procurement process that will continue to provide our residents with quality services and good value for their council tax. Urbaser's vehicles will all be fitted with Euro 6 engines and drivers' will be trained to monitor fuel use, speed and to minimise unnecessary accelerating and breaking, which is great news for the environment too."

Urbaser managing director Javier Peiro said: "Urbaser is committed to providing our clients with value for money and excellent service levels. We look forward to working with both councils."
