A green solution for managing north London's rubbish

North London Heat and Power Project is North London Waste Authority's ambitious plan to redevelop the 52-year-old Edmonton EcoPark, delivering a new sustainable waste hub to replace the existing energy from waste plant and provide flagship recycling facilities for north London’s residents.

Our Vision
