Who's Who
Cory Environmental

Western Riverside Waste Authority (WRWA)

The Authority is responsible for waste disposal on behalf of four London Boroughs: Hammersmith & Fulham, Lambeth, Wandsworth and the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.

The Authority which was established in 1986 is an autonomous statutory local government body charged with the duty of managing the safe and cost effective disposal each year of over 600,000 tonnes of waste, generated by some 800,000 residents from its four constituent boroughs. This mammoth task is carried out in an environmentally friendly way using the River Thames as its main method of transport.


Groundwork is the UK's leading environmental regeneration organisation working with local people, local authorities and businesses to promote economic and social change through improvements to the local environment.

Groundwork, through its Regional Trust in London, is the Environmental Body for the scheme and manages the fund with reference to the project partners. Groundwork has a network of independent trusts who as environmental bodies, are able to apply to the fund.
