Veolia manages recycling and household waste collections, street cleansing, commercial waste, recyclate material sales, winter maintenance and vehicle management for these south London boroughs which have a million inhabitants.
“We are delighted to have been awarded the contract with the South London Waste Partnership and to continue working with existing clients in Kingston and Croydon as well as beginning new relationships with Merton and Sutton,” said Estelle Brachlianoff, Senior Executive Vice President, Veolia UK and Ireland.
In a sustainable development approach, the harmonisation of waste management services across the four boroughs will result in significant savings.
