Norse Commercial Services subsidiary Suffolk Coastal Services (SCS) has been re-awarded the waste management contract for the Hutchinson Ports (UK)-owned Port of Felixstowe.

The three year agreement, the value of which remained confidential, starts on December 1 and covers a range of services including road and site cleansing, weed control, gully cleaning, general waste management, recycling and hazardous waste management.

“We are delighted to continue our excellent long-term partnership with Hutchison Ports,” said SCS commercial manager Tim Collard.

“We have been working with them for over six years now and this re-awarded contract is a clear indication of the quality of service we supply. Since the start of the initial term we have invested heavily in plant and equipment that is deployed in delivering the contract.”

Norwich-based facilities management group Norse also provides building cleaning services to the port’s offices.
