EcoPark South

EcoPark South

EcoPark South is the first phase in North London Waste Authority’s plan to build a £1.2bn sustainable waste management hub at Edmonton EcoPark.

Taylor Woodrow will deliver a flagship Resource Recovery Facility with the capacity to manage 135,000 tonnes of recyclable material every year, as well as the first ever public Reuse and Recycling Centre at the site. EcoPark House will open up the site to the public, providing a knowledge-sharing hub for waste prevention and recycling.

EcoPark House will raise awareness among the local community about the importance of the circular economy and reducing the carbon footprint of waste.

Environmental considerations are at the heart of the project, which include a rainwater collection system, a clean energy system powered by photovoltaic panels and geothermal energy. The team is also investigating an opportunity to harness the energy from the adjacent River Lee Navigation using hydro turbines.

NLWA is driving to achieve 50% household recycling rates and tackle the Climate Emergency by diverting up to 700,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste from landfill. The Project's carbon savings are the equivalent of 215,000 tonnes of CO2 each year, in an area that is home to around 2 million people.
