Our solutions for industries and municipalities

Back to sectors
Both industries and municipalities are facing a combination of major environmental, regulatory, social, economic and operational challenges. As a result, they have begun to look beyond simple service solutions in search of a truly creative partner able to innovate. This is the kind of ongoing challenge at which Veolia excels.

Millions tonnes of waste re-treated

Veolia partners with eight Sydney councils to deliver a new approach to managing municipal waste

Australia trad. waste


Eight councils that form part of the Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC) have signed an agreement with Veolia for a long-term contract for the treatment of household waste across their local government areas, one that will keep tens of thousands of tons of waste away from landfill each year.



Veolia developed a solution that will both lower the public authority's operating costs and reduce its carbon footprint. The contract calls for building a new transfer center in Banksmeadow (a suburb southeast of Sydney) which will create 40 jobs, in addition to the 35 new jobs at the Woodlawn recycling facility.
