During construction there will be about 770 lorries day and once operational about 666 a day.
There’s not enough waste locally to fill the incinerator, so it will be driven in from all over the country.
There is no contractual requirement for the lorries to follow a specific route. Lorries carrying hazardous waste could be coming down your road soon.
The incinerator will produce over 75,000 tonnes of ash a year that needs to be driven elsewhere for further processing.
That’s the equivalent weight of 17 double decker buses worth of ash a day.
That’s about 3 skip loads of extremely toxic ash a day being driven through our streets.
Fly ash from the South London Incinerator will likely be going 285km away to Wingmoor Farm in Gloucestershire where the local residents get to inhale this very toxic waste.
