FCC will undertake the municipal cleaning services in Crevillent for the next 10 years, which may be extended each year up to a maximum of 5 years, and will serve over 28,000 people in the municipality.

The contract was awarded to FCC as its bid was considered to be the best of the five submitted in the tender process. To ensure that the services of the recently awarded contract operate effectively, FCC has a team of 34 operatives plus the required personnel to maintain the equipment and supervise the work under the contract.

FCC has invested €1,800,000 in the new vehicle fleet, which includes six Euro 6 diesel vehicles with lower emissions; three 100% electric Piaggios; three compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles for waste collection and general services; a Toyota petrol-electric hybrid vehicle, which is at the council’s disposal; three street sweeper-washers; two electric blowers; four outdoor advertising stands with containers to collect used batteries, CDs and mobile phones; two vehicles with high pressure water blasters, which can also use silica dust; and an eco-car to support citizens on correctly managing their less common waste. The vehicles and machinery will considerably reduce odours, pollutant emissions, noise levels and water consumption. Furthermore, 751 containers and 187 litter bins will be made available to the city.

Other new developments include the setting up of dog zones and a canine DNA register to stop faeces being left on public paths. Measures against uncontrolled tipping will also be implemented, waste collection services will be delivered also on Sundays and public holidays and the wash-down services will be extended to all Crevillent's streets.

Since 1977

The FCC Group started delivering services to the municipality of Crevillent in 1977 when it was awarded the waste collection and street cleansing contract. Since then many contracts have been renewed with companies of the FCC Group, which has made technological and environmental improvements over the years to correctly manage waste and to improve the cleanness of public streets.

Renewal of the building cleaning service
Last December, the Crevillent Council renewed a contract with FCC Medio Ambiente for the cleaning service in municipal buildings and offices. The contract is for a term of 4 years, extendable for a further 6 years, and is worth over €1,276,000 (VAT included) per year. FCC has provided this service in Crevillent since 1991.
