Last June the WEEE recycler announced that it would provide a solution for the capitals e-waste through a partnership with London Remade. It predicted then that the first plant would be in place by early 2007.
London Remade director of resource management and reprocessing Jamie Blake told MRW that the first of three planned EnvironCom WEEE plants in the capital is now expected to open this autumn.
Sites for two plants have been found in the north and east of London and are currently going through the planning process.
All three sites should be up and running in the next two years, Blake said. He added that they would offer a combined reprocessing capacity of 450,000 tonnes a year.
EnvironCom currently has a WEEE treatment facility in Grantham that has been operational since 2004. It plans to roll out several WEEE facilities in the UK.
