Portsmouth Dumps Veolia


Veolia has lost out to another company as the preferred bidder for Portsmouth City Council’s new rubbish collection contract.  7 March was a bad day for Veolia: not only did it fail to secure the replacement for its current contract but a long running campaign by Portsmouth & South Downs PSC has exposed its complicity in Israel’s violations of international law.  The Council say Veolia’s rival won on price and quality.  We will never know for sure how much influence campaigners had, but this is another instance of Veolia failing to win a replacement council contract after a strong local campaign to have it excluded.  It follows Veolia losing in Richmond last month, Edinburgh in December 2010 and Sandwell in 2009.
