Citywide Environmental recently implemented a fleet management plan to improve logistics and fuel efficiency. The division will continue to roll-out the plan over the coming 12 months, optimising deployment of waste and street sweeping vehicles.
Another current initiative is the implementation of Management Information Systems/GPS across the commercial waste business. The new system enables real time tracking of vehicles to support route modification and logistical analysis.
For a decade, Citywide has been a leader in the adoption of technology to reduce its environmental impact. This year we will continue to trial alternative fuel sources such as LPG and diesel mixes in waste vehicles.
Citywide Environmental also launched its paper and cardboard bailing business in July 2009. This sees the company offering a sought after product (paper waste) while reducing vehicle use and associated costs. We are also exploring the development of a construction and industry (C&I) recycling service. It has the capacity to create additional income while reducing waste to landfill and transport costs.
