Recycling and waste management business FCC Environment has been awarded a waste collection contract with recycling company DS Smith Recycling.
This includes collecting and treating residual waste from 150 businesses of all sizes across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
The contract will see 2,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste per annum being collected and treated at FCC Environment’s energy from waste facility at Eastcroft in Nottingham.
This means that an additional energy from waste treatment will be provided in addition to DS Smith’s current recycling service.
FCC Environment C&I director Paul Burnell said: “This contract recognises FCC Environment’s commitment to supporting businesses of all sizes to recycle more and generate energy from what cannot be recycled. It shows the progress we’ve already made in developing appropriate collection and treatment capabilities.”
DS Smith Recycling national commercial manager Tim Price added: “We are committed to helping our customers implement sustainable waste management practices. We are confident that FCC Environment offers the capabilities, both in terms of collection and treatment to support our customers’ landfill diversion ambitions.”
