THE City of Joondalup’s domestic rubbish and recycling collection will look a little different next week.

From July 2, the dark blue trucks of SUEZ Recycling and Recovery will hit local streets as the City’s new domestic collection contractor.

In February, the council accepted the tender from SUEZ to provide the services for five years with an option for another two.

SUEZ will empty all domestic waste bins weekly and deliver the waste to the composting plant in Neerabup.

Recycling bins will continue to be emptied fortnightly and material will be delivered to the Cleanaway Material Recovery Facility in Guildford.

SUEZ will also partner with the City to roll out the three-bin system, which is set to be introduced in January 2019, and will service the new greens waste bin on a fortnightly basis.

Mayor Albert Jacob said SUEZ was one of Australia’s leading waste management companies.

“Their cutting edge technology will assist the City to maintain best practice in waste management and optimum service for our ratepayers,” he said.

He thanked Cleanaway for its service over the past 10 years, which will continue with the City’s bulk hard waste collections.

The City expects a seamless transition with no change to current collection days.
