LIFE AFTER COLLECTION

What happens to you office waste after it leaves your office 

Ever wondered what happens to your general waste once it is collected? We did. So we visited the largest Energy from Waste facility in the UK.

Located on the banks of the River Thames, Cory Riverside Energy turns 785000 tonnes of London’s non-recyclable waste a year into carbon efficient electricity. Waste that would otherwise have gone to landfill is taken to this facility to use as feedstock to generate c.525,000 MWh of electricity each year.

It’s unique river-based infrastructure transports London’s waste on a fleet of barges,removing around 100,000 truck movements a year off the capital’s roads.
