Environmental, Social and Financial Benefits of 60% Waste Diversion Action Plan

In addition to avoiding increased disposal costs for the City, by taking the steps in the Action Plan a number of benefits will be achieved including:

  • increased waste diversion (33% more diversion),
  • creation of jobs (between 125 and 170 direct and indirect; within and outside London),
  • reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (about 17,000 to 27,000 tonnes per year, equivalent of removing 4,200 to 6,800 cars from the road),
  • reduced landfill impacts (less odourous materials being landfilled, less traffic, etc.),
  • better use of materials and resources,
  • residents will feel satisfaction/pride living in an environmentally progressive community, and
  • short-term landfill cost savings.
