The waste management company said the new site on Beddington Lane will “bolster the company’s position as the leading construction, demolition and waste management and recycling business in the capital”.
To enable the site to accept commercial tipping waste from the new year, Powerday will install a weighbridge at the site straight away, while other improvement works also take place.
All waste arriving at the site will be bulked and transferred to one of the company’s materials recycling facilities (MRFs) in Willesden or Enfield, ensuring it is diverted from landfill.
The site will play an important role in Powerday’s future growth, the company said. With MRFs in west and north London, the company said its long-term plan is to develop another facility at Croydon to “minimise road miles and enable it to increase the amount of waste it can accept from local construction, demolition and tipping businesses”.
Edward Crossan, chief executive of Powerday, commented: “The acquisition of Economic Skips in Bermondsey this September and the purchase of this site in Croydon, means that we have significantly expanded our services south of the river going into 2024. This will enable us to provide even more clients across London with a responsible waste management service that benefits the environment and helps them meet their sustainability targets.
“2024 will be an exciting year for Powerday and our two new sites will be pivotal to our growth strategy. We look forward to welcoming our new clients in south London and will continue to look for ways to improve the service we offer businesses across the Capital.”
