VEOLIA loses contract in East Sussex, UK due to vigorous campaign against it 28Mar12 March 28, 2012
Congratulations to Hastings Against War for their successful campaign to exclude Veolia. They have just heard:
”Following completion of the first round of the Competitive Dialogue procedure, the joint waste project manager has confirmed that Veolia are no longer involved in the procurement process for the joint waste collection contract for East Sussex local authorities.”
This is a substantial contract for waste collection, recycling, street and beach cleaning for Eastbourne, Hastings, Rother and Wealden Councils. (details HERE for the technically minded). It could last up to 20 years - but Veolia will not be profiting from it.
After vigorous local campaigns in UK to exclude the company for complicity in Israeli war crimes Veolia has lost contracts in Sandwell, Edinburgh, Richmond, Portsmouth, Winchester/East Hants, South London, Ealing and West London - and now East Sussex.
