Polk County renews its trust in FCC Servicios Medio Ambiente
Polk County (Florida, USA) has awarded FCC Environmental Services, subsidiary of FCC Servicios Medio Ambiente in the United States, the renewal of the solid urban waste collection contract for the Western area of the County. The award represents an order book value of up to $155 million (about €140 million) for a maximum of five years and three possible one-year extensions.
This service was one of FCC Environmental Services' first waste collection contracts in the country, awarded in December 2016, and the renewal, which will begin in September 2024, is a testament to the company's excellent performance on the current contract.
The new award, which will serve 74,000 households and more than 200,000 people, boasts an investment of $20 million (€18 million) and will introduce a fleet of 38 state-of-the-art compressed natural gas (CNG) collection vehicles, as well as the implementation of a CNG fueling station at its facilities.
Íñigo Sanz, CEO of FCC Environmental Services, expressed his enthusiasm for the renewal: "We appreciate the partnership with the County and are very excited to carry out the new investments that will result in an even more efficient and eco-friendly service. FCC has been serving this County for six years and we still have one more left on the contract, and with this renewal award we will continue to serve Polk's residents for up to nine more years into the future."
In the past twelve months, the company has signed contracts worth more than $2.1 billion (around €1.9 billion) and serves more than 11 million residents in the states of Florida, California, Texas, Iowa and Nebraska. This makes it one of the largest municipal solid waste management companies in the United States.
