FCC lands 49 million euro municipal waste recycling management contract in the UK

FCC, through its UK subsidiary Waste Recycling Group (WRG), has been awarded a 7-year contract to manage household waste recycling plants (HWRCs) in the boroughs of Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham, in South Yorkshire. The contract, which is worth 49 million euro, involves managing 14 HWRCs across the three boroughs, which together receive around 86,000 tonnes of household waste a year.
 
This contract will enable FCC to strengthen its presence in Yorkshire and to provide a tailored service based on its extensive experience and knowledge in the area of recycling plant management.
 
FCC has been operating in the UK for over 18 years through subsidiaries Focsa and WRG; the latter, which was acquired in 2006, is the UK's leading waste management company and provides end-to-end waste management.
 
Focsa Services serves close to 1.6 million people in such areas as Herefordshire, Wychavon and West Wiltshire, Allerdale Borough, West Devon Borough, Hereford, Telford and Wrekin, and Hereford & Worcestershire PFI.
 
WRG manages over 11 million tonnes of household, commercial and industrial waste each year and operates waste reception, recycling and disposal plants throughout the UK, including a network of transfer stations, recycling plants and landfills nationwide. It has 58 landfill sites (capacity: 185 million cubic metres), 28 transfer stations, 2 incinerators (including the UK's largest), 14 composting plants, 70 household waste recycling centres, and other facilities for recycling and processing industrial waste.
