Quebec-based IPL Inc. has been awarded a contract valued at more than $7.2 million to manufacture and distribute wheeled carts by the City of Kelowna, British Columbia. The carts will be manufactured at the Saint-Damien facility, and will be delivered between January and April 2009, the company said.

Under the terms of the agreement, IPL will supply 157,000 carts with capacities of 120, 240 and 360 litres to be used in the collection of waste, organic waste and recyclable materials.

In addition, the carts will be equipped with radio-frequency identification tags enabling the compilation of statistics required to optimize the city’s waste management program.

“IPL is proud to have been selected for this mandate, our second significant one in Western Canada in the last few months,” said IPL president and CEO Serge Bragdon. “Our ability to meet stringent customer specifications and to meet a tight delivery schedule, combined with a product of superior quality, confirms IPL’s leadership in the development of innovative technical solutions in the environment sector.”
