Veolia takes over Wheelie Waste’s Shepparton operations, expanding services in regional Victoria
Effective 13th July, 2019, Veolia will take over Wheelie Waste’s Shepparton operations, including its commercial transfer station and waste management fleet.
Anthony Roderick, Veolia’s Group General Manager for Tasmania & Victoria said the decision allows Veolia to strengthen its current offering by expanding its existing municipal waste collection services in the Greater Shepparton region.
Anthony stated, “This is an exciting opportunity for Veolia as we build capability in northern Victoria, and add further value to customers through fleet expansion and route optimisation.”
Established in 1972, Wheelie Waste Collection has provided a range of waste management services to Local Government, Commercial and Private operations throughout Victoria, servicing over 450,000 properties each week. Services include residential and commercial waste collection, recycling and organic waste, as well as scrap metal services.
“Planned and ongoing services, including the kerbside collection services will continue as normal” Mr Roderick further added.
