Welcome to Western Riverside Waste Authority.

In this section you will find information about the Waste Authority, including its Members, Strategy and previous meeting notes.

Western Riverside Waste Authority (WRWA) is the statutory body, or local authority, responsible for the management of the waste delivered to it by:

  • London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham
  • Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
  • London Borough of Lambeth
  • London Borough of Wandsworth

Waste Transfer Stations

Cory Environmental Ltd, the Authority’s Waste Management Services Contractor, operates two waste transfer stations situated on the River Thames in South London; one in Wandsworth and the other in Battersea.

Household Waste and Recycling Centres

WRWA also runs a Household Waste and Recycling Centre (or public tip) at its waste transfer station in Smugglers Way, Wandsworth. This may be used by residents of the four boroughs, as well as residents of the City of Westminster. Residents of the London Borough of Lambeth who want to recycle items may also use its Reuse and Recycling Centre in Vale Street.

WREF is a partnership between the Western Riverside Waste Authority and Groundwork UK. The fund uses landfill tax credits - contributed by Cory Environmental - to promote environmental improvements and sustainable waste management in the region.
