At Veolia we are always striving to deliver innovative ways to turn waste into a resource for our customers throughout the UK. Click below for some examples of our great work in action.

​Recycling street sweepings

Our new facility in the Midlands uses an innovative process to increase recycling of street washings and support landfill remediation by providing material for aftercare.

We have a number of contracts with cities across the UK which generate a significant volume of street sweepings every year.

An advanced treatment solution was needed to divert this particular waste stream from landfill - our street sweepings facility at Ling Hall in Warwickshire uses a process of wet and dry separation to achieve this.

Key figures:

50,000tpa capacity

50t treated per hour

£2m investment and 85-90% landfill diversion of street gully waste

As well as creating individual recyclate streams and landfill restoration materials, the final separation of solids leaves a dust that offers the opportunity for precious metals recovery.
