As part of the Brent Cross West station programme we are providing a replacement waste facility for the Hendon Waste Transfer Station as the existing site is needed for the redevelopment.

The Brent Cross Waste Transfer Station will accept household waste, street sweepings, recycling and food waste from the seven North London Waste Authority boroughs, but principally Barnet and Camden.

Hendon Waste Transfer Station ceased operations on 31 March, and the site is due to be evacuated on 31 June.

The new centre will handle up to 195,000 tonnes of black bag, mixed recycling, food and street cleaning waste each year.

The new waste centre will have sustainability informing its design with a ‘brown roof’ providing a haven for local wildlife and supporting local biodiversity such as bumblebees and the Black Redstart. To minimise impact on residents it will have state-of-the-art odour control technology. There will also be green screening to enhance local flora and improve air quality.

Work schedule

A main works contractor is to be appointed in May 2021.

Main works on the new waste transfer centre are expected to commence in 2022.
