Notes: Covanta’s bid to build an SRF-burning incinerator on this site as part of a waste contract was withdrawn in February 2012 [Source]. A planning application for an incinerator on the site was submitted by the North London Waste Authority (NLWA) in May 2011, but this was withdrawn in April 2013. Covanta was one of three companies shortlisted for a NLWA contract to manage 250,000-300,000 tonnes of anticipated municipal waste. The previous NLWA procurement was through PFI but funding was withdrawn by the Government in October 2010 [Source].(Entry updated 2015-07-07)
