Responsible waste management
Powerday provides market-leading waste management services to construction and demolition companies, local authorities and commercial businesses operating in London and across the UK. With five sites across North, South and West London, we also provide local skip hire services to householders, builders and other businesses looking for competitively priced skips in the vicinity as well as third party tipping for licensed waste carriers.
Our well-maintained, tracked fleet of over 75 Euro 6 and ULEZ compliant vehicles are working across the Capital 7 days a week. We deal with waste safely, efficiently and compliantly delivering sustainable solutions for all our clients. We operate the largest Materials Recycling Facilities (MRFs) in Southern England from sites in Willesden Junction and Enfield which are supported by waste transfer stations in Brixton, Heathrow and Wimbledon. Combined, these facilities are licensed to process over 2 million tonnes of waste each year and provide 100% diversion from landfill to our wide range of clients.
We make the best use of the resources we receive and are one of the UK’s biggest private producers of refuse derived fuels which are supplied to energy-from-waste plants across the UK and Europe. We are continually exploring more sustainable solutions for clients’ waste ensuring the maximum value is derived from these resources.
Our high standards across the board are reflected in our many certifications, memberships and awards including ISO 14001 environmental management, ISO 9001 quality management and ISO 45001 health & safety management.

Powerday was founded in West London in 1977 by our Chairman, Mick Crossan. With the help of a long standing and valued team, we have developed significantly since then. Whilst remaining an independent family business, we have achieved consistent organic growth and an unrivalled presence across London and coverage nationwide. From our humble beginnings, Powerday is now a £50million+ business employing around 240 people.
Powerday in the community
With an ethos of ‘giving back’ installed by our Chairman and founder Mick and shared strongly by our Vice Chairman Edward, we use our sustained growth to support our local communities. In particular we believe strongly that the lives of disadvantaged young Londoners can be improved through sport and opportunity. Our work in the community, delivered through the Powerday Foundation and Powerday Academy, is now as important to our company as our waste management services.
