who we are

Veolia is the UK leader in environmental solutions, providing a comprehensive range of waste, water and energy management services across the UK and beyond.  The Veolia group is the global leader in optimized resource management. With nearly 179,000 employees worldwide, the Group designs and provides water, waste and energy management solutions which contribute to the sustainable development of communities and industries. Through its three complementary business activities, Veolia helps to develop access to resources, preserve available resources, and to replenish them.

Veolia is the recycling and waste contractor for Telford & Wrekin Council. We work in partnership to ensure an efficient service to residents of the borough.   The recycling contract began in 2014 and over the years has developed to include a purpose built Integrated Waste Management Facility and weekly food waste service. We are responsible for all kerbside collections, two Household Recycling Centres and the bulky waste collection service.  Alongside our operational commitments our team offers educational resources, talks, workshops and more to residents to promote the importance of recycling. We also have an annual grant that offers financial support to community groups who work to better the environment in the borough. 

We are proud of our increasing recycling rate and there is always more we can do, for tips on how best to recycle click here. To see our monthly recycling rates click here.
