In 2003, East Sussex County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council awarded Veolia Environmental Services a 30 year contract for the delivery of an integrated waste management service. Delivering this service requires the operation, development and construction of a network of strategically placed facilities, designed to increase recycling, composting and recovery and to reduce dependence on scarce local landfill. Under the contract Veolia is not responsible for the household collection of waste or recyclables.
The strategy consists of a network of facilities that have been developed.
Veolia operates 14 Household Waste Recycling Sites, in partnership with the councils.
The Energy Recovery Facility is now fully operational. Click here for the latest issue of the bulletin.
