Spelthorne Borough Council has awarded Specialist Fleet Services Ltd (SFS) a 6-year contract to replace its waste, recycling and street cleansing fleet. The contract involves the provision of over 17 vehicles, comprising refuse vehicles and sweepers, and SFS has a dedicated workshop on-site to maintain the vehicles. The new fleet was delivered to the council last month.
Jackie Taylor, Group Head Neighbourhood Services, Spelthorne Borough Council:
“During the tender process we undertook a full and thorough evaluation of all the bids that were received and scored each according to a set of criteria. SFS won the most points and offered the best solution in terms of quality and price. The vehicles will also be equipped with the latest safety and weighing technology. We look forward to working with the team at SFS and we are confident they will help us to further improve our service to residents.”
The council is committed to improving recycling rates and the new vehicles will be sign-written to promote sustainability.
SFS is a well-established specialist contract hire, fleet and workshop management company with particular expertise in helping local authorities maximise the efficiency of their fleet operations.
Bob Sweetland, Managing Director, SFS said: “This is the first time we have worked with Spelthorne Borough Council and we hope this will be the beginning of a long-standing partnership.”
