Casablanca terminates Averda's waste management contract
Averda will continue serving the various districts within its contract while it paves the way for an amicable handover
An announcement from the city of Casablanca to end its contract with Averda waste management was made late this month.
The termination of the partnership comes after Averda served the city since 2014.
Averda and the city representatives released a joint statement indicating that the authority would initiate “a new competitive bid for the delegated management of cleaning services throughout the city of Casablanca.”
The statement also points to the fact that Averda will phase out its services during a transition period to ensure ongoing service for the Hay Hassani, Ain Chock, Ain Sebaa, Hay Mohammadi and Sidi Bernoussi areas.
Since it began operating in Morocco in 2012, Averda has expanded to serve three other cities: Nador, Berkane, and Rabat. Averda provides a variety of waste management services to these cities, including manual cleaning, mechanical cleaning, beach cleaning, household waste collection, construction and demolition waste collection, and green waste collection for the city.
