Averda, a leading international environmental services provider that was founded in Lebanon, has been awarded four seven-year contracts in Casablanca, Morocco, commencing in June 2019.
The contracts follow its commitment to investing in new technologies, people, services and equipment, and are for the four districts of Sidi Bernoussi, Ain Sebaa-Hay Mohamadi, Ain Chock and Hay Hasani.
“After five years of service in Casablanca, we are delighted to renew our commitment to communities across the city with fresh ideas and a very exciting range of brand-new services and solutions. I’m also pleased to announce a major investment in staff and equipment” commented Averda CEO, Malek Sukkar.
The company, which deals in waste management, has forged a reputation as a technologically advanced, ISO certified and socially responsible provider that delivers efficient, safe and environmentally responsible value for municipalities, industries, households and business owners.
Averda places great importance on acting as a responsible corporate company and in 2018 won the Future Workplace Awards ‘Best Employee Engagement’ award in Morocco. It also invests in education initiatives with a focus on equipping children with the skillset and knowledge that they need to protect the environment for generations to come.
Building upon its prior experience in Casablanca, Averda will complement its services with underground waste storage containers, side-loaded containers and watertight metal containers.
Collectively, their deployment will allow Averda to handle significantly greater volumes of waste, helping the municipality to avoid the longstanding challenges relating to capacity in densely populated areas.
The contract, which was signed this week, with the Commune of Casablanca, will see the introduction of new state of the art, heavy-duty equipment including waste compactors, bin washers, sweepers, loaders, tipper, tankers and bins.
There will also be an increase of the labour force including manual sweepers, collection staff, truck drivers, controllers and support staff.
Averda aspires to be the largest, most innovative and most adventurous waste management company in the developing world.
