Waste management partnership

BID Lead

Benefit from our Veolia waste contract, offering exclusive rates for BID levy payers.

Project Type

Our exclusive waste contract with Veolia provides exclusive rates for Bristol City Centre BID levy payers in addition to detailed support to help you increase recycling rates and further reduce costs. Veolia Waste Contact prices have been frozen since 2019 and in this time recycling rates in the city centre have almost doubled, rising from 34% to 63%. Costs for businesses have fallen by an average of 40 per cent for businesses using the contract, with 98 per cent increasing their recycling rates.

Our waste contact also reduces vehicle movement around the city centre easing congestion and improving air quality as well as providing a single point of contact for discussions with Bristol City Council on how to reduce waste in the city.

Many of our businesses have achieved results that far exceeded expectations, including one city centre restaurant who approached Veolia with a desire to increase recycling and reduce costs by 25 per cent. By installing the correct waste streams, Veolia has saved the company 54 per cent on its previous annual waste contract and increased recycling from 25 to 80 per cent.

We chose Veolia as our waste contractor in February 2018 following a competitive tendering process managed by waste management specialists Eunomia. We wanted to ensure your priorities were met for a reliable, efficient service that would increase recycling and reduce costs.
