Renewi has won a five-year waste collection contract with the municipality of Cranendonck in the south of the Netherlands.

The waste-to-product company will be responsible for collecting all organic waste, residual waste, plastics, glass and other materials in the municipality as well as running a waste recycling point. Under the contract, Renewi will manage waste in the municipality from almost 21,000 citizens, over more than 8,000 households.

"Renewi will work with the municipality over the next five years to increase the waste separation rate to be able to give new life to the used materials. The municipality will develop a waste policy plan, in conjunction with Renewi, to achieve its sustainability objectives, including increasing source separation of raw materials. Renewi is also deploying an extensive communication campaign, including a new website and waste app, to motivate and support the municipality's citizens in separating their waste," said Otto de Bont, MD, Renewi Commercial Waste Netherlands.

Mayor Marga Vermue of Cranendonck stated: "In 2015, Cranendonck collected an average of 97 kilograms of domes residual waste per resident, far less than the national average of 202 kilograms, while the separation percentage was approximately 81%. However, we as the municipality of Cranendonck want to improve the collection and separation of domestic waste even further and within this contract we have set our target at 50 kilograms of residual waste per person per year in 2022."
