Nottinghamshire - Background

Veolia nottinghamshire background

Helping to make Nottinghamshire a more sustainable county

Since 2006 Veolia has been helping Nottinghamshire County Council and the seven Borough/District Councils of Nottinghamshire to manage household waste created in the County. Over the life of the 26 year Private Finance Initiative (PFI) waste management contract, we will help to increase household recycling and composting in the County to 52% by 2021; significantly reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
