Tendring District Council has awarded a new �1 million contract to Connaught Environmental Ltd to clean all its public toilets.
The company, which has contracts with other local authorities, including Essex County Council, has secured the contract for five years.
Tendring council is currently responsible for 41 sites across the district. Connaught Environmental will be involved in all aspects of cleaning, locking and unlocking premises, as well as reporting any incidents of vandalism.
Lynda McWilliams, the council's cabinet member for the environment, said: “We have had a number of compliments already about the improved standard of cleaning so the company has got off to a great start. Connaught Environment's bid also represented a �24,000 saving on last year's contract and was therefore very good value for money.”
