Protecting Residents and Creating Value for Councils

Local Government

With public buildings to run, housing stock to maintain and offices to manage, local councils operate some of the country’s largest property portfolios. They also have a statutory duty to achieve value for money in all the services they buy.

Rentokil can help local authorities to meet these aims by providing best value services for the protection of residents and council assets from pest problems.

We support Council Environmental Health Departments with specialist services such as bird management or vector control as well as providing pest control professionals to supplement the council’s pest control team to meet peak demand or for specific projects.

Where a local council chooses to outsource some or all of its pest control and related activities to Rentokil, our service will exceed the service level agreements that we undertake on behalf of the council. This will include a clear demonstration of best value that will be reviewed as part of the governance agreement. Where employees transfer to Rentokil, we will of course abide by the Protection of Employment Regulations as set out by the Acquired Rights Directives. However, just as importantly, we also offer transferring colleagues the opportunity to develop their skills and career path with the leading pest control group.

Whichever way we provide services to a local council, the key differentiator is how we work with estate managers, building services and environmental health to deliver effective, environmentally-sensitive and value-based pest control that contributes to the quality of life of residents.
