The blaze started near Launders Lane at around 1pm on Friday afternoon.
Due to a large amount of waste on the site, fire crews have spent the weekend tackling deep-seated pockets of fire.
“Today diggers will be used to help turn over the waste to allow fire crews better to access the remaining pockets of fire,” a London Fire Brigade spokesperson said.
“This process will mean that there will be a lot of visible smoke coming from the fire so residents living nearby are advised to continue to keep their doors and windows closed as a precaution.”
At its height, around two hectares of grass and a pile of mixed waste were alight.Tags: Havering, Rainham
