Our local authority customers

SUEZ helps local authorities to rise to the challenges by managing their resources smartly and sustainably: delivering quality water and waste services for all, creating new local and renewable energy sources, progressing towards the circular economy and the sustainable development of our country.

We provide a range of services for local authorities, including street cleansing, recycling and refuse collection, recycling centre management, materials recycling and trading, and the treatment and disposal of residual waste.

We believe strongly in a partnership approach, with specialist experience in operating local authority waste and recycling contracts, many of them for up to 25 years long.

We understand the pressure to reduce carbon emissions and meet demanding targets for recycling and recovery, which is why we have pioneered new initiatives – such as developing a ‘green’ fuel produced from landfill gas and introducing computerised collection systems to improve the efficiency of our collections service.

Here you’ll find some examples of the work we do with our local authority partners.
