Veolia has won a series of waste collection and recycling contracts in France

During the second quarter of 2015, Veolia strengthened its positions in waste collection and recycling in France as a result of renewing and winning numerous contracts.

Consolidated foothold in the traditional waste collection activity

Many communities renewed their confidence in the Group for waste collection: Communauté d’Agglomération de Limoges for 7 years, the SIDMA Cœur Pays d’Auge for 5 years, Communauté d’Agglomération de Quimper for 5 years and the Syndicat mixte pour l’Etude et le Traitement des Ordures Ménagères de l’Eure for 3 years.

Development of the material recycling activity

Veolia is now recognized as the benchmark producer of recycled raw materials and green energy.
The Syndicat Intercommunautaire du Littoral entrusted the Group with a 12 year contract for operating the new energy from waste unit in Echillais (Poitou-Charentes), which in 2017 will produce 25 GWh of heat and 28 GWh of electricity.
The Syndicat Départemental pour l'Elimination des Déchets Ménagers de Haute Marne has also chosen Veolia to improve and operate the energy recycling plant in Chaumont for a period of 5 years. Between 2018 and 2023, its capacity will increase from 21 to 47 GWh of heat per year, combining supplying a local heating network with electricity production.
Finally, the Communauté d’Agglomération de Cergy-Pontoise (Île-de-France) has entrusted Veolia with the construction and operation of a waste disposal center, Recycl'Inn. It is a new generation sorting area that is more efficient and convenient for users, and is equipped with a Recy'shop space dedicated to reusing and recycling of waste.


«Every contract renewal has been an opportunity to present new innovations to our customers that match their new expectations through our local organizational structures,» says Bernard Harambillet, Chief Executive Officer Waste Solutions for Veolia in France.

«The Company’s growth on new thriving markets are clear evidence that our customers find in Veolia the reference partner that provides them with new solutions for the production of renewable energies, materials recovery and innovative services. Our Company has therefore demonstrated its ability to turn the waste of some into resources for others, by encouraging the implementation of a circular economy from waste collection to treatment and materials recovery», says Veolia’s CEO Antoine Frérot, confirming that the strategic transformation of the Group is bearing fruit.
