SOLO wins Waste Contract
New Contract Awarded to Manage City of Unley Waste andRecycling Collection
From Monday 22 September, City of Unley residents will notice SOLO Resource Recovery trucks servicing their kerbside bins after the South Australian company won the exclusive contract.
City of Unley CEO Peter Tsokas said that while it was business as usual from a resident and business point of view, there may be some minor changes to the normal waste collection routine.
“Residents should be aware that there might be a slight change to the regular pick up times so we are encouraging households to place bins on the kerbside no later than 6am,” Mr Tsokas said.
“We (City of Unley) appreciate the patience of our residents during this transition period.”
The day of collection will remain the same, as will the week of recycling and organics pick up.
“Council is excited about the opportunity to work with Solo Resource Recovery who are well knownsuppliers that have been providing collection services to councils in Australia for over 80 years,” Mr Tsokas said.
For all bin repairs or maintenance, missed collections, theft, hard refuse bookings and other collection enquiries residents are asked to theWaste Hotline on 8159 5059.
