This year will mark the first year of operation of the Severnside Energy Recovery Centre, which was commissioned by the West London Waste Authority (WLWA) back in 2013. This drastically reduces the amount of waste that West London sends to landfill. It also supplies enough electricity to power around 50,000 homes. More details can be found on the WLWA site.
Reducing landfill is a key policy objective in meeting the waste hierarchy objectives outlined below that I have mentioned before.
