WEEE reuse site opens in North London

EnvironCom has opened a new waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) reuse and recycling site in Edmonton, north London which it claims will be the largest plant of its kind in London once complete.

The 55,000 sq ft site has so far cost £250,000 to develop with an additional £500,000 investment planned for next year.

EnvironCom has recently achieved a 15.2% reuse rate at its Grantham site in Lincolnshire, which is more than three times the Government’s own aspirational target of 5%.

The new site aims to double the amount of WEEE reused at the Grantham site, hitting a 30% reuse target.

EnvironCom chief executive Sean Feeney said: “We have set ourselves extremely high targets for reuse which go far beyond what the government only aspires to.

“We’re already achieving more than 15% reuse and our vision is for much, much more. Our new London site will help us to achieve this which means we can continue to do the right thing with WEEE waste for consumers, local authorities, retailers and of course the environment.”

Feeney, former logistics director at Dixons, joined EnvironCom at the beginning of the year.
