Integrated waste management & environmental services to local communities and industries of Southdowns

Veolia is renowned for its integrated waste management and environmental services to local communities and industry.

Veolia South Downs Ltd.

In April 2003, East Sussex County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council awarded Veolia a 30 year contract for the delivery of an integrated waste management service. To provide the service Veolia formed the local company Veolia ES South Downs. Delivering the integrated waste management service requires the operation, development and construction of a network of strategically placed facilities, designed to increase recycling, composting and recovery and to reduce dependence on scarce local landfill.
