Cheltenham-based waste and resource management company Urbaser has won a contract to provide waste collection and street cleansing services for North Hertfordshire and East Herts District Councils.

Beginning in May 2018, the contract will provide services for around 280,000 residents, with the option to extend for a further seven years.

Urbaser will be responsible for refuse and recycling collections plus garden, clinical, bulky and food waste and street cleaning duties including graffiti and fly-tipping removal.

Vehicles will be fitted with Euro 6 engines and drivers will be trained to monitor fuel use to reduce emissions.

An in-cab system will also be introduced with vehicle-mounted hand-held PCs that integrate with back office systems allowing front line staff to view service information and log events.

Graham McAndrew, executive member for the environment at East Herts District Council, said:

“We’re pleased with the outcome of our joint procurement process. The local community promises to benefit from significant investment by Urbaser for the duration of the contract.

“This will include using local suppliers, increasing local employment opportunities and investing in local charities and good causes.”
