Powerday has begun work with Redrow Homes at the historic police training centre at Hendon.
The 22 hectare site was previously owned by the Metropolitan Police and used as an operational training centre since the 1930s. Being transformed by the North London division of Redrow Homes, Colindale Gardens – as it is now known – benefits from over 2,900 new homes, retail units, a gym, primary school and nursery as well as cycle routes and green open spaces. Within easy reach of central London on the Northern line, the development was popular with buyers with one, two and three bedroom apartments selling fast upon construction.
One of the UK’s leading housebuilders, Redrow Homes is committed to delivering across all areas of sustainability and had a 2018 target of diverting over 95% of waste away from landfill.
full waste management services
Powerday provided full waste management services to the development including skips, roll on roll off’s and dustcarts with waste being processed for 100% recovery at Old Oak Sidings less than eight miles from Collingdale Gardens. The PAS402 certified company also provided comprehensive, industry leading recycling reporting to enable Redrow Homes North London to be able to confidently assess their recycling performance.
After assessing our options for the waste management on site, we were happy to partner with Powerday. They have excellent facilities, a modern fleet, and are able to report accurately on recycling and service performance which will enable us to exceed our sustainability target.
