Southwark Waste Management Facility
Veolia Environmental Services Ltd
Waste Management Services
In February 2010, Veolia Environmental Services - which provides waste related services to around a third of the UK population - was granted planning permission to build an Integrated Waste Management Facility on Southwark’s Old Kent Road.
When it becomes operational in 2012, the state-of-the-art facility will process all the borough’s household waste and recycling, and provide a long-term solution to Southwark’s waste management needs. It will also bring regeneration, investment and new jobs to the area.
The centre will comprise a Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) plant to treat residual waste, a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) to sort commingled recyclables, Household Waste, Reuse and Recycling Centre (HWRRC) for residents to deposit a wide range of items of household waste, a recycling waste transfer station, and an educational visitor centre.
