LodonEnergy: managing waste in London

LondonEnergy is wholly owned by the North London Waste Authority (NLWA) and serves seven boroughs of North London; Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Waltham Forest, Barnet, Enfield and Camden. LondonEnergy’s mission is to divert household waste and recycling away from landfill by producing energy from waste.

Since November 2020, LEL has been operating a waste transfer station and recycling plant from a site in Wembley and as of September this year, 2021, McGrath Bros. (Waste Control) Ltd won a competitive tender to provide waste collection services to this new site.

The competitive process led to McGrath collecting municipal solid waste to be brought to the Barking MRF.

Of the C. 1,500 tonnes received from LondonEnergy per week, McGrath transport the residues to Wheelabrator Ltd,  a Waste To Energy facility based in Kent, which is a combined heat and power processing plant generating up to 49.9 MW (gross) of sustainable, baseload electricity to power for U.K. homes and businesses.
Emma Hiney, Waste Operations Manager at LondonEnergy says, “Our relationship has started well with McGrath and their regular collections are enabling us to run an efficient, compliant business.

They provide an essential and reliable service to us, treating our waste when we have reduced capacity due to outage or maintenance.”
