Veolia extends Haringey deal

Resource management firm, Veolia, has been awarded a two-year contract extension, worth £21.6 million with Haringey Council.

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

The extended deal 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 per cent, 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.

In the last year alone the Veolia Haringey team has delivered nearly 400 hours of staff volunteering time attending events, workshops and meetings in partnership with local enterprises and charitable organisations. This has all been in aid of those in vulnerable or socially disadvantaged groups supporting them with mentors and skills development programmes and identifying potential employment opportunities.

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.”
