The UK’s leading resource management company has been awarded a two year contract extension to continue its work to deliver ecological transformation in the London Borough of Haringey.
Over the next few years, Veolia and Haringey Council will continue to strive towards an improved recycling rate. Currently at 27.4 %, they’ll work together to develop existing services and introduce new initiatives that will help residents recycle as much as possible. This will include a dedicated collection service for small electricals that will not only help salvage precious materials but also prevent the growing number of fires in vehicles and at facilities, caused by these items. The contract has already introduced smaller electric vehicles into its fleet and one of the electric vans will be used to operate this service. Alongside its operational delivery, Veolia will also build upon its already extensive social value and responsible employer programme that has seen the delivery of numerous diversity, inclusion and community-focused programmes benefiting the local community and the teams who work there.
Pascal Hauret, Managing Director, Municipal at Veolia said: “We’re delighted to be continuing our long partnership with Haringey Council. The next few years will see us strive for higher recycling rates and the conservation of resources, in line with our purpose of ecological transformation. We’re particularly proud of all the social value initiatives the partnership has fostered and look forward to increasing this added value to the communities we serve together.”
