Veolia Signs New Waste And Recycling Partnership with Hammersmith & Fulham Council

Veolia, the UK leading resource management company has won a new nine and three quarter year contract with Hammersmith & Fulham Council which will help contribute towards significantly improving recycling rates and supporting its ambitions to reach Net Zero by 2030.

The new contract includes kerbside recycling and waste collections, bulky waste and street cleansing and will expand the current food waste recycling scheme to cover the whole of Hammersmith & Fulham. The borough is home to several high-profile events for which Veolia will deliver street cleansing services namely the Boat Race, Queen’s Club tennis and around the three football stadiums on match days. 

A tailormade recycling improvement plan will be devised in collaboration with the Council and will be supported by a new Education, Communication and Outreach team to engage with residents and community groups on the ground to introduce new initiatives to increase recycling.

As a leader in the development of electric municipal refuse fleets, Veolia will work with Hammersmith & Fulham to develop electric vehicle and charging infrastructure solutions creating significant reductions in CO2 emissions, improving air quality and diminishing noise pollution. This will also support Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s climate emergency target to achieve Net Zero by 2030.

“We are delighted to announce that we are the environmental partner of choice for Hammersmith & Fulham Council. The contract will significantly boost recycling rates across the borough, conserving resources in line with our purpose of Ecological Transformation. We are committed to launching social value initiatives within the community, such as introducing the Sustainability Fund to support local biodiversity and recycling projects, provide recruitment opportunities for long term unemployed residents and increase the number of apprentices.”
