Kettering and Corby councils will merge their waste, recycling, grounds and cleansing services next year.

Corby Borough Council's current outsourced service will be brought back in-house.

Kettering will be the lead authority of the new shared service, which starts in February 2019 with a new fleet of vehicles.

Brendan Coleman, head of environmental care at Kettering Borough Council said: “Merging our services in this way means that we can share resources and ultimately provide better value for money to local residents across both areas.

“We are confident that the implementation of a new, fit for purpose fleet, in Corby will lead to immediate service improvements in the area.”

Specialist Fleet Services Ltd (SFS) will be providing the new 35 vehicle fleet, which includes refuse trucks, recycling vehicles, sweepers, tipper trucks and transit vans.

The contract hire and fleet management company has worked with Kettering Borough Council for over 15 years.
