FCC awarded a new contract in the US, which is to be undertaken in Garland, Texas

FCC, through FCC Environmental Services, its American subsidiary, has been awarded a contract for the transportation, treatment and commercialisation services of Garland's recyclable waste. The contract is worth around 6 million dollars (6.4 million euros) and is for a term of 5 years.

Garland, home to 230,000 residents, is one of the main cities in the metropolitan region of Dallas-Fort Worth. FCC will recycle around 10,000 tonnes of the recyclable waste produced each year by Garland residents in its recently opened Dallas plant.

The contract is the sixth formalised by FCC in the US over the last two years, the fourth in the state of Texas. To date, the backlog relating to said contracts stands at around 560 million dollars.

The first contracts awarded in Texas related to the transportation of biosolid waste in the city of Houston, the construction and management of the new MRF (Materials Recycling Facility) in McCommas Bluff Landfill facilities in south Dallas, and to the treatment and commercialisation of all recyclable waste in University Park. Furthermore, FCC Environmental Services has recently been awarded two MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) collection contracts in Polk County and Orange County in the state of Florida.

FCC has continued to grow internationally in recent years. In the United Kingdom, the company has commenced the construction of the Recycling and Energy Recovery Centre in Edinburgh and Midlothian, and also officially opened an energy-from-waste (EfW) plant in Buckinghamshire. At the end of last year, FCC secured several municipal waste collection contracts in Barrow-in-Furness borough council, Cumbria (United Kingdom), and in the city of Prostějov in the Czech Republic. In addition, FCC has been shortlisted for the tender for an EfW plant in Belgrade (Serbia).
