Will only household waste be treated at Edmonton EcoPark?

The new Energy Recovery Facility will be large enough to treat residual waste for the seven north London boroughs.

Based on a 50% household waste recycling rate, the facility is expected to have spare capacity of around 127,000 tonnes in 2025/26, reducing to around 89,000 tonnes by 2050/51. To make sure we don’t have spare capacity, this could be offered to third party residual waste collectors.
