Veolia will expand its services to ground maintenance of public spaces in a new £142.3m contract with Brent Council.
As part of the nine-year public realm contract, which starts in April 2014, Veolia will continue to provide the local authority with recycling and refuse collections, street cleansing and winter maintenance, and will add services of grounds maintenance of parks, open spaces and of the land of the Brent Housing Partnership.
The contract can be extended for a further seven years.
Veolia has been providing environmental services to the borough since 1992.
“We have been in Brent for over twenty years, the first London borough contract we won and one of the first in the UK altogether,” said Estelle Brachlianoff, director UK and Northern Europe for Veolia Environnement.
“The special demands of Brent and its residents are complex and unique which made the winning of this contract particularly pleasing as we look to further develop the service on this valuable and prestigious contract,” she added.
Muhammed Butt, Brent Council leader, said that the contract will help ensure Brent remains a place that residents “can take pride in”.
