1. Processing recyclable materials
Cory receives, sorts and segregates dry mixed recyclables (DMR) for Western Riverside Waste Authority (WRWA) and its four London boroughs.

Non-recyclable waste is transported on barges using tugs via riverside transfer stations in Wandsworth, Battersea, the City of London and Tower Hamlets.
3. Processing non-recyclable waste
Situated in Belvedere, Cory’s Riverside facility is one of the largest operational EfW facilities in the UK and the only one with both river and road infrastructure for receiving waste.
4. Ash recycling
Metals are extracted for recycling from the ash produced by the incineration process.
5. Repairing vessels on the Thames
Cory Ship Repair Services operates two slipways at Denton Wharf in Gravesend, on the banks of the River Thames.
