This structure means the continuous evolution of our services to clients as part of a long-term strategy to create even greater value and accelerate the mission.
As always, the team has done a fantastic job getting it ready so that service delivery can continue without disruption.
The contract builds on the success of the existing waste management services structure, which has been in place for four years, and the focus remains, where possible, on providing treatment processes that allow waste to be diverted from storage.
The framework can provide services covering the entire waste life cycle, including but not limited to project management, expert advice, characterization, site preparation, dismantling, transportation, segregation, treatment, conditioning and optimized disposal.
