France – Although French waste management company Sita is to sell its 36% holding in competitor Nicollin back to the company, the two giants will continue to co-operate.
Having been a partner in Nicollin’s development since 1992, the Suez Environnement subsidiary has decided to put more focus on waste recovery. Nicollin has been an important player in the transport and treatment of municipal and industrial waste, and continues to pursue growth in this area. It is now said to be among the largest family-owned companies in the French waste management market.
Meanwhile, Sita has been awarded contracts by a major French take-back organisation for the collection, sorting and processing of end-of-life furniture. Furthermore, operations have begun at a new company plant which will sort recyclables from households in Ploufragan in the Brittany region of France.
