The company will provide waste collection services to the city of Port St. Lucie starting Sept. 5.

FCC Environmental Services, a waste management and recycling company that services customers across the U.S., has been unanimously awarded a $450 million contract by the Port St. Lucie City Council to provide waste collection services for the city.

The contract is good for seven years with an associated backlog of $300 million, in addition to a three-year extension option that brings the total backlog to $450 million. The venture has a total investment of $47 million and will add more than 110 employees to FCC’s current workforce.

Once the contract begins Sept. 5, FCC will begin to collect trash, recycling, bulk waste and yard waste throughout the entire city using a fleet of 75 collection vehicles. FCC will serve 82,000 households and 1,300 commercial customers, as the company now serves more than 550,000 households in the state and 9 million nationwide.
