First major CDE contract for Powerday MRF

Recycler Powerdays materials recycling facility (MRF) in Willesden Junction, London has won its first major contract since opening in 2007.

The construction and demolition MRFs owner has signed a five-year deal with building firm Wates Living Space to recycle waste from its building sites.

This deal is part of Wates Living Spaces pledge to create zero waste by 2010.
Under the contract Powerday will offer material destination transparency so the client will know where its waste has gone.

The MRF has a licence to recycle up to 1.6 million tonnes a year and it operates green waste transport using canals and rail links, as well as roads.

Commenting on tonnages from Wates Living Space, Powerday spokesman John McKenna said: Theres no estimate of how much material will be supplied by Wates as each building site will vary on the amount it generates.

However, he did confirm that recently more and more people had been contacting him to discuss sending material to the site.

Powerday managing director Mick Crossan said: Wates Living Space is one of the first companies to have the foresight to move away from relying on Victorian methods of waste disposal. At Powerday were really pleased to be working on such an important and deliverable project. Our aim is 100% resource recovery, and no less.

Wates Living Space operations director John Walsh said: The target of zero waste to landfill is challenging. But our partnership with Powerday means were already well on our way to meeting our objectives, setting new standards for the construction industry and reducing our carbon footprint.
