Wokingham Borough Council delivers local services to a district in Berkshire covering 155,000 residents. It needed a flexible partner to provide street cleaning and maintenance services.
To deliver enhanced services and cost savings as part of a new five-year contract with the local authority, a long-standing partner of OCS.
We have provided street cleaning and maintenance services to the council for more than 25 years. We provide a flexible workforce that can be mobilised at short notice when required - for example, for non-routine clean-ups.
Regular reviews encourage maximum efficiency. For example, we have introduced smaller, more environmentally-friendly road sweeping vehicles. These have reduced the local authority’s carbon footprint and helped it meet its sustainability targets. Over 1,000 tonnes of road sweepings are sorted into bulk loads for recycling annually, and street sweepings are collected for composting.
