Veolia has renewed its waste management contract with train operator London North Eastern Railway (LNER) worth over £900,000.
Under the contract, Veolia will provide waste management services covering the route of Aberdeen to Peterborough, which comprises of 11 Stations, 1 HQ and 1 depot.
The contract began on 28 April and will run for an initial duration of four years, with the option to extend for a further year.
LNER started the procurement process for the contract a year ago and received a total of 7 tenders.
Veolia has provided waste services for the stations for several years and is working to help it achieve its target of a 30% recycling rate across the whole business.
Under the contract, Veolia will provide waste collection and treatment services for the stations.
LNER has previously seen a low recycling rate across all platforms and depot’s, with the last recorded statistic being 15% in 2018.
The train operator said that the low rate could be down to a “number of reasons” and also outlined measures it had tried to take to improve this (see letsrecycle.com story).
