Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are no facilities on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for composting green waste. All green waste is screened at Barking Material Recovery Facility then composted into a PAS100 compliant compost by East London Waste Authority in Romford.

Future options for shared composting facilities with local boroughs are under investigation.
