How much rubbish will the South London Incinerator burn?

300,000 tonnes a year for the next 25 years.

That’s equivalent in weight to 68 double decker buses of rubbish a day.

To maximise their profit, Viridor have tied the council in to a long term fixed base load contract to burn more rubbish than is available locally.

This is a big disincentive to reducing the amount of waste we produce.
