FCC lands another contract in the UK

Through its UK subsidiary Focsa Services UK, FCC has been awarded a 7-year contract to collect municipal solid waste, recyclables and garden waste and to operate and maintain the recycling plant in the city of Chester. The contract is worth approximately 26.6 million euro.

FCC has been providing services in Chester since 1995 and this is the third time it has obtained a renewal of the contract by competitive tender.

The city of Chester has a population of 119,000; FCC will manage over 50,000 of waste in the city each year.

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 and waste-to-power solutions for national, regional and local needs.

Focsa Services serves close to 1.6 million people in such areas as Herefordshire, Wychavon district, Allerdale Borough, West Devon Borough, Hereford Council, West Wiltshire district, Hereford & Worcestershire PFI, and Telford & Wrekin.

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: 183 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.
