Why are you starting this project now?

The existing Energy from Waste facility is coming to the end of its life. A replacement facility is required to ensure that we can continue to manage waste sustainably for current and future north London residents. The facility will ensure that we continue to divert north London’s non-recyclable waste from landfill.

Plans to replace the facility began in 2013 and was followed with extensive public consultation in 2014 and 2015. Our plans took account of environmental considerations and a number of alternative options were considered.

We were granted consent by the Government to operate a state-of-the-art facility at the site in 2017 and work to prepare the site for construction started in January 2019. We are making rapid progress to deliver the Project and expect to start moving operations to the replacement facility in 2025, with all operations moved by 2027.
