Old Oak Sidlings

This Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) at Old Oak Sidlings in Willesden has an annual throughput of 500,000 tonnes. Our planners, designers and environmental impact specialists provided advice and support in the realisation of this scheme which comprised two substantial sheds, an office building, a new wharf on the Grand Union Canal and new railway sidings to allow the import/export of waste by rail and water. The facility can be seen from the Great Western Mainline on your way into London and remains one of the key processing facilities supporting recycling in London.
