Veolia has invested £6million in a fleet of new waste collection vehicles in Bromley.

The 36 vehicles were procured by Veolia following its new waste management contract in the London borough for an initial eight years.

They have been used to help Bromley residents recycle textiles, batteries and small electrical items from their doorstep.

An extra 1000 residents are now able to receive food waste collections each week thanks to the narrower bodies on the vehicles which allows them to service smaller streets.

All vehicles are fitted with 360 degree on-board cameras and GPS tracking technology.

William Huntington-Thresher, executive councillor for environment and community services, said: “There remain very strong environmental and financial reasons to help residents recycle as much as possible. As well as encouraging each and every resident to play their part, I also want to thank residents for their extra recycling, patience and support as we all get used to these new collection patterns over the coming weeks.”

Since introducing the new recycling services, 480kg of batteries, 640kg of textiles, and 560kg of small electrical items have been recycled.
