Veolia has won three waste treatment contracts totaling £71 million from Westminster City Council.

The resource management company will provide solutions to help the council reach its target of zero waste to landfill.

The agreement covers treating food waste and the recycling of standard bin waste for the next three and half years. It will also treat residual and bulky waste as well as street sweeping for the next six and a half years.

The food waste will be transformed into a renewable fuel source and fertiliser at Biogen’s anaerobic digestion facility in Hertfordshire.

Residual waste will also be recovered into energy at South East London Combined Heat and Power facility. The waste will be used to create power for National Grid and heating and hot water for local homes.
