North London Waste Authority
The North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is made up of seven north London boroughs (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest). Nearly 1.9 million residents live in the NLWA area.
NLWA is responsible for helping the seven north London boroughs dispose of the 850,000 tonnes of waste they collect every year. NLWA's aims are to:
- achieve a 50% recycling rate by 2020
- reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill to 35% (of 1995 amounts) by 2020
Find out more about NLWA, and visit 'Wise Up To Waste', NLWA's consumer website, which contains information for residents on reducing waste and recycling more.
