Notting Hill Carnival clear up creates green energy

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

Over 200 tonnes of rubbish was cleared over two days by Westminster City Council and Veolia following Notting Hill Carnival.

Around ten tonnes of the waste was recycled, with the remaining waste converted into green energy to power London’s homes.

It is estimated 20,000 kWh of heat and 100,000 kWh of electricity was produced, which is enough energy to power 80,000 hot showers or make 700,00 cups of tea.

David Harvey, Westminster city council cabinet member for environment, sports and community, said: “While the clean-up operation represents a logistical challenge, our council officers and Veolia have done us proud.

“The transformation is staggering and I know our residents and visitors appreciate their dedication.”
