Bywaters hopes its new central London site will prove an Olympic winner

Winning the London 2012 Olympic bid has forced recycling and waste management company Bywaters to relocate three of its four sites.

Bywaters new state-of-the-art facilty

As the sites were on Olympics land, Bywaters took the opportunity offered by the move to amalgamate them into one new 9.2 acre site in Bromley-by-Bow. The site includes new state-of-the-art technology and has the capacity to handle up to 500,000 tonnes of recyclables a year.

It claims the move makes it the most centrally located recycling and waste management operator in central and east London and hopes its location will benefit from future Olympic-related business.

Remaining so close to the Olympic Park is a tremendous opportunity for Bywaters.

We have already gained great experience being heavily involved in the construction projects at Canary Wharf. We hope that our track record will stand us in good stead for opportunities ahead, said managing director John Glover.

It has taken its relocation as an opportunity for further green investment, by purchasing three Toyota Prius cars for its account managers. There are also plans to install rainwater harvesting facilities, wind turbines and solar panels. And it is in discussion with British Waterways about opening a new lock at Bow Locks, so recyclables can be transported by barge.

Bywaters fourth site on Gateway Road, to the east of Hackney Marshes will also shortly be redeveloped.
