Muswellbrook Shire and Upper Hunter Shire Councils (the Councils) applied for authorisation to enter into and give effect to an agreement to jointly invite tenders for the provision of kerbside waste collection services, specifically the collection of garbage, recyclables and organics from the kerbside and its transportation to their respective facilitites for resource recovery processing or disposal.
The Councils sought authorisation to cooperate in inviting tenders, considering the submitted tenders, and selecting preferred tenderer(s). Each of the Councils would retain the power to select a different supplier from that selected by the other Council, and each Council would enter into a separate contract with the chosen supplier(s).
On 6 December the ACCC issued a final determination granting authorisation to the arrangements until 28 December 2033.
