Complete Weed Control, the Carluke-based ground maintenance specialist business, has been appointed to play a vital role in managing one of the UK’s leading waste and resource management company’s habitat management plans.
FCC Environment operates a UK-wide range of waste management sites including material recycling facilities (MRF), energy from waste (EfW) plants and landfill sites. Its approach is to minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfills by transforming it into valuable resources from more than 200 recycling treatment and disposal facilities across the country. Each year it recycles 1.6 million tonnes of waste and generates more than 117MW of green energy.
CWC will take on the task of maintaining the environment around five of FCC Environment’s landfill sites in Lanarkshire, Aberdeen and Midlothian.
Keith Gallacher, Director of Complete Weed Control operations in the south-east and south-west Scotland, said: “We are pleased to have won this contract, which involves intricate specialised work ranging from managing weed control and the grass around the sites’ pipelines to conserving and maintaining woodlands, plants and the natural environment generally.”
Laura Collins, Procurement Advisor at FCC Environment said: “We held a competitive tender for this important work and were highly impressed by the planned approach of Keith and his team at CWC.
“We are confident that with CWC on the job, the environment around our Scottish landfill sites will be in excellent hands for the next few years.”
Complete Weed Control provides ground maintenance and weed control in spring-summer and autumn along highways, construction sites, parks, and other public areas throughout the Central Belt.
