Averda signs three-year contract with ASEZA.

Averda has announced the signing of a three-year waste management contract with the Aqaba's Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZA).

As per the agreement, the waste management provider will oversee the collection of litter, sweeping and solid waste. It will also deliver janitorial services.

Aqaba initially served as Averda's first city-wide operation in Jordan. To date, the Aqaba operation, which is managed by a team of 300 employees, has collected more than 60,000 tons of waste.

As part of its operation, Averda introduced a number of specialised sweepers designed to remove small-size waste from places that are inaccessible to conventional waste vehicles. The fleet is capable of operating in narrow sidewalks and streets, as well as dock areas.

Bassam Al Zaatary, project manager for Averda Aqaba, shared: "Over the last year we have also worked on many awareness raising projects with ASEZA and launched several campaigns and activation points that were aimed at educating the residents with regard to the proper manner of disposing of waste and at changing waste management practices."

He added: "We take great pride in Averda's achievements over the last year and we believe our commitment to the residents and businesses of Aqaba laid the foundations of a lasting, environmentally-friendly and waste aware city."
