The company is celebrating after it added to its extensive local authority portfolio with the award of a £3 million per annum contract with Burnley Borough Council.
VES chief executive for the UK and Northern Europe Cyrille du Peloux said: We have recently reinforced our position as the leading player in the municipal sector and are delighted to win this important contract.
In particular we are looking forward to working closely with the council on improving recycling ratios which are now a key performance indicator in local government.
With a minimum length of six years, the contract with the Lancashire borough starts in April 2007 and involves service delivery to approximately 90,000 residents in around 40,000 properties.
The company will provide a combined approach encompassing refuse collection, street cleansing and recycling services for residents on behalf of the council.
