Our local authority customers

SUEZ helps local authorities rise to the challenge of managing resources more sustainably and smarter. We do this by recovering value from waste through recycling and energy generation, optimising collection and other local services, and devising innovative solutions, while protecting the environment. Working in partnership with local authorities, we are helping local communities prepare for the low-carbon circular economy.
How we help

We provide a comprehensive range of environmental services for local authorities. These include street cleansing, recycling and refuse collection, recycling centre management, materials recycling and trading, and the treatment and disposal of residual waste.


Local government is under pressure to reduce carbon emissions and meet demanding targets for recycling and recovery, while minimising costs for taxpayers.


Working in partnership – sometimes under long-term contracts for 25-30 years – we create environmentally responsible and cost-effective solutions.


We have pioneered innovative answers to today’s environmental and financial challenges – for example, developing a ‘green’ transport fuel produced from landfill gas, and introducing computerised collection systems to improve the efficiency of our collection services.
