On 2 February 2019, Aragon Direct Services was launched.
Aragon Direct Services took over the services operated by Amey in a phased transfer as follows:
- 2 February 2019 – building cleaning service
- 1 April 2019 – waste collection and home to school transport routes
- 4 May 2019 – grounds maintenance, street cleansing and building maintenance services
In the first year of service, our number one focus has been to continue to improve the services in a more flexible approach to meeting the growing needs of our city. For example, where priorities change and we want to amend schedules for a service such as grass cutting this can be arranged more easily than if through an outsourced contract.
Aragon Direct Services will allow us to generate income through commercial operations which will help us to deliver first class services to our residents.
Aragon Direct Services is the trading name of Peterborough City Council’s registered Local Authority Trading Company, Peterborough Limited.
