FCC Servicios Medio Ambiente reinforces its presence in Florida with a new contract
On 11 May, the Wellington (Florida) City Council unanimously approved the award of the new contract for the residential urban solid waste collection service to FCC Environmental Services. The contract foresees a term of 10 years, with a possible five-year extension, and the order book value amounts up to $135 million (around €112 million).
FCC Servicios Medio Ambiente’s US subsidiary reinforces thus its presence in the state of Florida, where it already holds a strong presence with contracts in Palm Beach, Orange, Volusia and Polk counties, among others. FCC Environmental Services serves today over one million inhabitants in this state.
To service the city's 65,000 inhabitants, around 22,000 single-family residences, FCC Environmental Services will collect the residual waste twice a week; and recyclables and pruning waste on a weekly basis. This new contract also includes attending to over 450 commercial businesses.
Wellington city is located in the southeast of the state of Florida, in Palm Beach County, where the company already provides services, so FCC will serve this contract with an additional fleet of 17 lorries from the current depot located in the county.
FCC Environmental Services is one of the top 20 companies in the United States in comprehensive solid waste management and recycling.
