Inside the Beddington ERF

Residents living near the Beddington Energy Recovery Facility in South London will be able to explore the plant through their smartphone thanks to a virtual video centre.

The tour aims to help residents learn more about the facility and what happens to their non-recyclable waste after it is collected by the South London Waste Partnership (SWLP).

Households in Croydon, Kingston, Merton and Sutton can also learn about the facility’s emissions, with information provided on how the ERF treats emissions before being released and access to Emissions Monitoring Data reports.

Mike Stafford, head of contracts at Viridor, said: “The Virtual Visitor Centre helps to give a unique insight into how non-recyclable black bag residual waste is treated once it is thrown in the bin.

“We recognise that there is a genuine interest in what happens at the ERF and this website forms part of our commitment to share operational updates and information about the facility. In the coming months we look forward to opening the education centre at the ERF for community groups to see our operations first hand.”

Beddington ERF has been receiving waste from the SLWP and licensed third parties for a number of months and is soon to be fully operational.
