(MENAFN - Morocco World News) Rabat – The city of Casablanca has announced the end of its contract with the Averda waste management company, which has served the city since 2014.
On Tuesday, Averda and the city representatives released a joint statement indicating that the city would initiate 'a new competitive bid for the delegated management of cleaning services throughout the city of Casablanca.'
The statement also indicated that Averda will phase out its services during a transition period to ensure ongoing excellent service for the Hay Hassani, Ain Chock, Ain Sebaa, Hay Mohammadi and Sidi Bernoussi areas.
The Municipal Council of Casablanca concluded its decision during its ordinary session on May 3, 2018.
Since it began operating in Morocco in 2012, Averda has expanded to serve three other cities: Nador, Berkane, and Rabat. Averda provides a variety of waste management services to these cities, including manual cleaning, mechanical cleaning, beach cleaning, household waste collection, construction and demolition waste collection, and green waste collection for the city.
