Straight, the eco-friendly container manufacturer, has signed a £1.7m deal with services group Serco.

The contract will see Leeds based-Straight supply Serco with containers and other products to help the latter fulfil an eight-year waste collection agreement with Canterbury City Council.

Recyclable and garden waste, together with mixed recyclables, paper and food waste will be collected in a range of Straight's wheeled bins and caddies.

Jonathan Straight, chief executive at Straight, said the contract win illustrated the company’s strength as “a key player in the waste management industry and the partner of choice for contracts of this nature.

“We very much look forward to working with Serco and helping Canterbury City Council achieve its new recycling initiatives”.

Serco development director Robin Davies said: "Our contract with Straight will play an important role in servicing our renewed eight year agreement with Canterbury City Council.

"They fully integrated into and supported our bid process providing waste management expertise. They also supply high quality products which are durable and proven across UK local authorities over many years."
