We are pleased to be supporting the new Brita campaign that highlights the amount of waste that is produced every year from plastic water bottles. The aim of the campaign is to challenge people’s current single-use plastic water bottle usage and consider using Brita’s reusable product option as a more sustainable alternative. Check out the Brita stand at London Waterloo and Victoria, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow rail stations from 5th June for six weeks.
Our Managing Director Peter Sharpe spoke to letsreycle.com about the future of the Edmonton EcoPark, which is due to undergo a major revamp.

LondonEnergy (formerly LondonWaste) has this week launched START Safely, a ground breaking employee engagement programme designed to develop a culture that puts Health & Safety at the heart of the business and makes it the first consideration for the company’s 265 employees and visitors to their sites.
The 12-month programme aims to position LondonEnergy not just as a health and safety leader in the waste and recycling sector but also ensure that its performance is comparable to the leaders in any other similar industry.
Start Safely will incorporate a range of interactive activities including employee workshops based on a number of topics including culture & Golden Rules, Manual Handling, Vehicle Safety and PPE. This engagement activity will be supported by new, modern and clear signage across the entire business.
The START Safety culture will be underpinned by LondonEnergy’s Five Guiding Principles:
- Stop and question all unsafe acts
- Take responsibility for your own and others’ safety
- Always wear correct PPE
- Report all hazard and incidents
- Take 5 to SLAM (Stop, Look, Assess, Manage)
Waltham Forest Council and LondonEnergy (formerly LondonWaste) gave away over eighty tonnes of compost to residents from across the Borough on the 17th to 19th March 2017.
The high quality compost, which is produced from residents’ food and green waste at the Edmonton EcoPark, was available for residents to collect free of charge from four sites across the Borough.
The 60 tonnes of compost made available over the weekend is part of over 200 tonnes that has been allocated for free giveaways to local residents over the course of 2017.
Commenting on the giveaway, LondonEnergy’s Managing Director, Peter Sharpe said:
“The Compost Giveaway is a great way to give something back to local residents. It’s also a great example of really effective, local and closed loop recycling with a high quality product being produced and made available to the same people who produced the waste in the first place. We would urge any green fingered residents to come down with a shovel and a bag and help themselves!”
The compost was available from the following locations:
- Church Lane Car Park, Leytonstone E11 1HE
- Langthorne Park car park, Birch Grove, Leytonstone E11 4YG
- John Beanse Waste & Recycling Education Centre car park, Pimp Hall Nature Reserve, 48 Kings Road, Chingford E4 7HR
- Stocksfield Road, Walthamstow, E17 3LJ
The Compost Centre at LondonEnergy’s Edmonton Ecopark can process up to 45,000 tonnes of organic waste a year and operates to the standards set by the British Standards Institution’s PAS 100 standard (BSI). This is the industry standard that ensures high-quality compost that is consistent, safe and reliable to use.
In addition to the Compost Giveaway residents are also able to collect free compost throughout the year from Alara Compost Hub 110- 112 Camley Street NC1 4PF.
