Powerday’s new £10m recycling facility in Enfield, north London, has been officially opened.
The plant is on the site of the company’s former waste transfer station in the Brimsdown area, matching the capabilities of its existing larger Old Oak Sidings facility in Willesden Junction.
The plant is permitted to process 330,000 tonnes of construction and commercial waste from the London area, and provides employment for up to 60 people.
Powerday, which now has an annual turnover exceeding £40m, says the facility offers greater options for clients and another high-volume production site for refuse-derived fuels.
Chairman Mick Crossan said: “We have become a ground-breaking recycling and waste management company, and have many exciting projects in the pipeline that will keep us at the forefront of the industry and I’m very proud of that.”
Alan Sitkin, Enfield Council cabinet member for economic development, congratulated Powerday for recruiting locally.
Construction of the Enfield MRF began in autumn 2014, with the design and installation of the recycling and recovery equipment delivered by Powerday’s partner Turmec Engineering.
