In addition, Veolia will be responsible for new services including public engagement, customer service and marketing commercial waste services.
Starting in April 2017 the focus of the contract will be on maintaining high service standards and delivering solutions to increase efficiency, provide effective management of resources and continually improve services. Veolia has pledged to work in partnership with the Council to increase recycling, reduce emissions and support the local economy through local employment and purchasing.
Estelle Brachlianoff, Senior Executive Vice President, Veolia UK and Ireland said: “Camden Council is a long standing and highly valued client. We are delighted to be continuing our operations in the borough and we look forward to working in partnership with the Council, local residents and businesses to deliver vital services. As Business in the Community’s Responsible Business of the Year 2016 we will support a more sustainable future for everyone in the years ahead.”
Councillor Meric Apak, Camden Council’s Cabinet member for Sustainability and Environment, said:
“I am excited at the opportunity to look at how we can best provide a modern-day service for the people of Camden. The new Environment Services contract that we have agreed will maximise up to date technology so that the service becomes both more efficient and responsive, in order to meet the needs of the council, and its residents and businesses.”
