We are pleased to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for the 2018 National Recycling Awards, in the Recycling Facility of the Year Category. Our entry focusses on our new ReFood London site, which was officially opened in Summer 2017 at the London Sustainable Industries Park in Dagenham.
Our London plant is our first facility in the South, helping to bring sustainability to businesses across the London area, and marking a £32 million investment into the capital’s recycling infrastructure. The facility is capable of displacing 73,600 tonnes of C02, and producing 14million m3 of green gas, enough to power 12,600 homes, each year.
1.5 million tonnes of food waste are generated in London each year, most of which goes to landfill. By employing state-of-the-art technology and opening our new industry-leading site, we’re helping to encourage businesses to dispose of their waste in a more sustainable way.
The winners of the National Recycling Awards will be announced at a ceremony on the 28th June at the London Hilton Hotel on Park Lane.
