Kerbside collection tender awarded

 

Alice Springs Town Council is pleased to announce that Transpacific Cleanaway has been awarded the Council’s kerbside collection tender for the next 5 years.

The contract is for the provision of a kerbside pick up service of domestic waste and is already in effect.  The contract is worth $3million (over 5 years) and will be in operation until September 2017.

As Cleanaway was the previous contractor, this should provide a smooth changeover to the new contract period.

Mayor Ryan said “Cleanaway operates locally and employees 3 staff as a result of this contract, so it is great to see that continue.”

Current pick up times and days will remains the same, however residents looking for more information about the pick up arrangements can go to - http://www.alicesprings.nt.gov.au/alice-springs-town-council/kerbside-collection
