London Remade Solutions, the consultancy service of London Remade, is pleased to announce its first partnership with Veolia Environmental Services as part of its 25 year PFI (private finance initiative) preferred bid to Southwark council. From autumn 2007, subject to final negotiations on the overall bid being successful, London Remade Solutions will deliver
stakeholder engagement including all communication and education campaigns for Southwark, as well as providing technical recycling advice to Veolia, initially for the first five years of the waste management contract.
Dee Moloney, Director, London Remade Solutions, said “This is a fantastic partnership which will demonstrate how to achieve a real difference in an inner city borough. We will be helping Veolia design new and easy to use recycling services for all properties, particularly flats, in Southwark. We'll also help with the communications with Southwark residents, explaining how they can reduce the amount of rubbish they generate and the convenient opportunities to recycle in their borough.”
Cyrille du Peloux, Chief Executive of Veolia Environmental Services' UK and Northern Europe, said: “Working in partnership with London Remade Solutions will give us the benefit of its local knowledge and technical expertise to help us assist Southwark in reaching its long-term recycling and composting aim of 50% by 2020/21.”
Southwark currently has a recycling and composting target of 20% by 2007/8 and has a long-term aim of 50% by 2020/21. Veolia will be delivering an integrated waste management solution providing a myriad of opportunities for residents to participate in revitalised rubbish and recycling services across the borough. It will also be working with London Remade Solutions to encourage behaviour change by connecting with residents through an ongoing intensive communications campaign, including running a state of the art education centre in the community.
