The New York City Department of Sanitation has awarded Veolia ES Technical Solutions a 10-year contract to collect and process e-waste as well as lighting, mercury and medical sharp waste from city agencies. The contract contains two extensions of five years, but the other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Veolia ES Technical Solutions is the hazardous waste division of Veolia Environmental Services North America.
“We are pleased to announce this new contract and area of work for our [e-waste] recycling division and are eager to continue to grow our relationship with the city of New York,” said John McShane, branch manager of Veolia ES Technical Solutions, in a press release.
The e-waste contract with New York comes on the heels of Veolia ES Technical Solutions winning a contract from the National Electrical Manufacturers Association to collect and recycle household mercury-added lamps in Maine.
