Veolia has been awarded a two-year contract extension to continue its waste management work in the London Borough of Haringey.

The resource management company has been working in partnership with Haringey Council to provide street cleansing, recycling, and waste management services for residents since 2011 and this extension will see them continuing to work together until 2027.

The contract extension, worth £21.6m, includes recycling and refuse collections, container deliveries, street cleansing, winter maintenance, graffiti and fly-posting removal, and commercial waste services, as well as running a Contact Centre to provide essential service support for residents.

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.

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.’
