Waste Transfer Station For London

Our facility in Greater London accepts a complete range of wastes and specialist loads. The station uses the very latest sorting technology and operates every hour of every day.  It covers 11 acres, and can accept over 300,000 tonnes of waste material per year.


The transfer station is situated on or near several major arterial roads making it a convenient location for tipping wastes from throughout London and the South East.  Located in the heart of an industrial complex in River Road, Barking it is situated just off the A13 trunk road, 5 mins from the Blackwall Tunnel, 10 mins from the M11 and just 15 mins from the M25.

The facility can accommodate vehicles of almost any size. It delivers a quick turnaround.  The average turnaround time in 2020 was just less than 15 minutes. Booking-in is straightforward using our Avery-calibrated, self-service weighbridges.  They are fully automated and allow the driver to enter the transfer station without leaving their cab by using a touch-screen terminal accessible from their vehicle.


The facility is also accessible via the River Thames. The site contains two wharves which can accommodate vessels up to 100m in length.  This provides an alternative to road transport for transporting wastes both from site and to their ultimate destination, reducing traffic congestion, fuel consumption and air pollution.  The wharf facilities are just six miles by river from Central London.
