Veolia West Berkshire Limited
In March 2008 Veolia was awarded a 25 year contract with West Berkshire Council and is targeting a long-term 49% recycling rate as part of a major boost to recycling in the area. Veolia have introduced kerbside collections of plastic bottles, cardboard and green waste, which augment the previous collections of paper, card, cans and textiles, while investing over £27 million in waste infrastructure.
The infrastructure includes an Integrated Waste Management Facility incorporating a recycling and composting facility with a municipal depot and visitor centre, along with mini recycling centres and Household Waste Recycling Centres. Veolia also operates a variety of services for West Berkshire including waste collection, recycling, disposal and street cleansing.
