NEA awards S$300m integrated cleaning contracts for north-east, south-east regions

The multi-year contracts cover the cleaning of areas such as PUB drains, NParks' public parks and URA car parks, says NEA.

SINGAPORE: About S$300 million worth of integrated contracts for cleaning the north-east and south-east regions in Singapore have been awarded by the National Environment Agency (NEA) on Tuesday (June 3).

A seven-year contract worth S$143 million was awarded to Chye Thiam Maintenance to clean the north-east region, while Ramky Cleantech Services was awarded the eight-year contract worth S$158 million to clean the south-east region, the NEA said.

NEA's Department of Public Cleanliness have consolidated all the cleaning works for the country's public areas into seven contracts for greater efficiency and better coordination. The contracts cover the cleaning of areas such as PUB drains, NParks public parks and URA car parks.

The management of public area cleaning was previously done by various agencies.

Four integrated contracts for other regions in Singapore have already been awarded, leaving one remaining tender for the south-west region left to be awarded, the agency said.

It added the various town councils will continue with their existing scope of cleaning the public housing estates.
