Birmingham’s waste strategy reflects the national policy of viewing waste as a resource rather than rubbish. In partnership with Birmingham City Council we are working towards achieving a 40% recycling rate by 2026.
In 2005, over 50,000 tonnes of rubbish was re-used, recycled, composted or diverted from landfill.
Veolia's Energy Recovery Facility (ERF), converts 350,000 tonnes of Birmingham’s rubbish into electricity each year.
Veolia operates two major waste transfer stations in Birmingham that manage the city's waste.
Veolia is involved with a number of local organisations to help improve community facilities and foster good relationships.
