FCC Medio Ambiente has begun to provide waste collection and street cleaning services recently awarded by the Arganda del Rey City Council (Madrid). The contract entails a total portfolio of 62 million euros for the next 10 years and represents an investment of almost 7 million euros in municipal services, where the company also carries out lighting and energy efficiency tasks.

In addition, a plan will be launched to replace the current underground containers with side-load container islands.As a novelty in the street cleaning contract, which covers the entire municipality (nearly 80 square kilometers), it is worth noting the increase in mechanization of the sweeping of sidewalks and roads to improve the efficiency and depth of cleaning the streets of the municipality.
