Suez Recycling gains contract with Mackay Regional Council

  • Posted on Thursday 5th, October 2017.

Waste management company, Suez Recycling and Recovery, has been awarded a $600,000 contract with Mackay Regional Council in North Queensland.

Suez will manage Mackay Regional Council’s waste haulage and landfill services contract at its Paget Transfer Station and Hogan’s Pocket Landfill.

The Council has reportedly said the seven-year-and-eight-month contract is an $87,000 saving in the first year from the previous contract.

Infrastructure and Services Committee Chair, Karen May, has said there was significant benefits in a sole operator looking after council’s waste management process.

“The appointment of a single contractor means there is no passing of the buck and they are responsible for managing all operations and delivering the service on time and on budget,” said May.

“The Paget Waste Transfer Station is a critical service that handles 92 per cent of the total waste sent to Hogan’s Pocket Landfill annually and processes 71 per cent of the total annual customer transactions.

“If our waste services aren’t delivered seamlessly it can cause serious disruption to the community,” she said.
