Veolia Deploys Street Cleaning e-Bikes in London

In partnership with Westminster City Council, Veolia is deploying a fleet of street cleaning e-bikes across Westminster, London.

The 14 new e-bikes have joined over 60 electric cleaning and collection vehicles that already operate in Westminster. By adding e-bikes to this fleet, Veolia has further cut the number of diesel vehicles it is operating within the borough.

Using an e-bike in the place of a diesel vehicle significantly reduces noise pollution and results in a 100% reduction in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.

The e-bikes also contribute towards the 89% reduction in carbon emissions from the overall electrification of Veolia’s Westminster fleet, thus strengthening the council’s commitment to net-zero by 2040.

With this deployment of e-bikes, Veolia aims to change the standard for collection and street cleaning operations.

Helder Branco, General Manager for Veolia Westminster said:

“We’re very pleased to be operating with such a large electric fleet in Westminster. The new electric bikes not only lower emissions and contribute toward Westminster City Council’s target of net-zero emissions by 2040, but also allow us to offer a further improved and streamlined service for Westminster residents. We hope that our innovative approach to our operations across the borough will continue to set the standards for the future of sustainable operations.”

The e-bikes are currently being used for the fly-tip collection process, the delivery of commercial waste bags, and for monitoring hot spot littering areas.

The use of these vehicles also ensures that waste can continue to be collected during road closures and within pedestrianised areas.
