A new multi-million recycling plant has begun construction.

Powerday has started work on its new recycling facility in Jeffery Road, Enfield.

The plant will cost £10million and be one of the biggest recycling plants in the area.

The company already has a processing site in the borough and hopes to open the recycling plant in April 2015.

The plant will create 60 new jobs and managing director of Powerday, Mark Bensted, is delighted with the plans.

He said: “We are very happy to commence construction works on this site and to be in a position to create up to 60 green jobs.

“The plant will provide an environmental solution which supports industry in the capital and avoids the additional transport distances and environmental impact involved in landfill. Enfield also sits at the heart of the North London Waste Plan area and development of new infrastructure is at the heart of the plan.”

Councillor Chris Bond, cabinet member for environment, and Cllr Alan Sitkin, cabinet member for economic development, said:  “Construction of Powerday’s improved recycling facility in the borough is a real boost for Enfield’s green economy, which continues to go from strength to strength.

“Powerday is a groundbreaking company that, like Enfield Council, uses waste as a resource to create new products and energy.  This is great for local jobs, great for the environment and great for Enfield.”
