Pinkham Way proposals
We are currently undertaking a competitive procurement process for new waste services, which will shape how we provide a modern, sustainable approach to managing the waste from the north London area over the next 25 to 35 years.
As part of the procurement process we need to find sites for new waste facilities within the north London area, rather than send it to the home counties or beyond.
We already use waste facilities on three key sites in North London, namely:
- a rail transfer station in Hendon, Barnet;
- an energy-from-waste incinerator, a composting plant, a road transfer station and a number of specific recycling operations at a large site in Edmonton, Enfield; and
- a road transfer station in Islington.
The transfer stations are too small to accommodate new waste facilities of the scale that is needed and there isn’t the space to put everything at Edmonton, particularly as we will need to continue to use the existing energy-from-waste incinerator on the site whilst new facilities are being built.
Accordingly we need a new site for waste processing within north London. The proposed Pinkham Way facility at the former Friern Barnet Sewage Works would therefore contribute to the improved management of a significant proportion of North London’s waste.
