The City of Rowlett (Texas) has awarded FCC a contract for the collection of all the residential and commercial solid waste from the City with an estimated value of $32.5M. The contract is for an initial period of seven years with an option to extend up to three years. The total volume of the contract has the potential to reach a backlog of $70M, factoring in franchised roll-off services and expected growth in the City.
Rowlett is a suburban town with 60,000 inhabitants located in the Northeast side of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Following this contract award, FCC, through FCC Environmental Services, its American subsidiary, will manage all the residential and commercial solid waste and recyclable materials from the City. Nearly 5,000 tons of recyclables collected annually from Rowlett will be processed and marketed at FCC’s newly inaugurated Materials Recycling Facility in the City of Dallas. Last year the facility received a P3 Bulletin gold award for the Best Waste/Energy/Water project, at a ceremony in Las Vegas.
This is the sixth contract signed by FCC in the State of Texas. FCC was recently awarded two significant contracts in the State of Florida, bringing the total to eight new municipal contracts within the US in less than three years. The company is also active in the Oil and Gas industry, treating the waste from the exploration and production activities in the Gulf of Mexico at its two facilities located in Theodore, AL and Port Fourchon, LA.
The backlog on municipal contracts awarded in the last three years to FCC in the US now totals $630M.
