FCC Environment has won a deal to operate 11 recycling centres in East Anglia.
The firm was awarded the contract – running from 16 May this year to the end of September 2027 – by Suffolk County Council.
A programme of site improvements and technological advancements will be delivered through the deal. Greater emphasis will be placed on reuse.
Suffolk council cabinet member for waste Paul West said: “This is a high-profile service with more than 1.5 million users each year across the 11 sites.
“We are delighted to once again be working with FCC Environment, which has demonstrated it has the experience and ambition to deliver against our targets and work in partnership with us to provide an excellent service for residents throughout the county.”
FCC Environment operates more than 100 household recycling centres across the UK.
Regional director Steve Longdon said: “We are excited to be continuing our relationship with Suffolk, and look forward to delivering a wider reuse offering, enhancing on-site technology to improve the user experience and implementing a raft of meaningful site improvements while reducing costs across the board.”
