The journey of waste

Cory receives around 750,000 tonnes of non-recyclable black bag waste a year, enough to fill St Paul’s Cathedral 12 times! 89 per cent comes to our four riverside waste transfer stations.


Ensuring London has a safe, clean, and sustainable way of managing its recyclable and non-recyclable waste.

Item 1

tonnes of carbon saved by not sending waste to landfill


Item 2
