Waste management company Veolia has expanded in regional Victoria with the acquisition of Wheelie Waste’s operations in Shepparton.

As of July 13, Veolia has taken the reigns of Wheelie Waste’s commercial transfer station and waste management fleet.

Its services include residential and commercial waste collection, recycling and organic waste, and scrap metal services.

The deal increases Veolia’s footprint in the region, where it already has a liquid treatment plant in Shepparton.

Veolia group general manager for Tasmania and Victoria Anthony Roderick says the decision "allows Veolia to strengthen its current offering by expanding its existing municipal waste collection services in the Greater Shepparton region".

"This is an exciting opportunity for Veolia as we build capability in northern Victoria, and add further value to customers through fleet expansion and route optimisation," he says.

"Planned and ongoing services, including the kerbside collection services will continue as normal."

Wheelie Waste had operated since 1972 for local government, commercial and private operations throughout Victoria with an exposure to more than 450,000 properties each week.
