Peterborough City Council has launched a wholly-owned company that will take over waste and recycling services in April.
It has already replaced contractor Amey’s building cleaning service, with 61 staff transferring to it.
The council decided in 2017 to end its public services contract with Amey, citing cost issues and estimating it could save £100,000 a year.
It later opted to set up its own company, Peterborough Limited, which has a board of councillors and council officers.
In addition to taking over waste and recycling, during the spring passenger transport, building maintenance, street cleansing and grounds maintenance will also transfer.
Peterborough originally signed a 23-year contract with Enterprise Managed Services in March 2011, which was taken over by Amey in 2013.
Gavin Elsey, then cabinet member for waste and street scene, said at the time that the contract no longer met the needs of either the council or Amey.
