Working for north London
In this section you will find a information about how the North London Waste Authority is run and how it works for north residents and businesses.
The Authority is made up of 14 councillors, two from each of the seven north London boroughs. It is these 14 councillors that ultimately make decisions relating to the disposal of north London's waste.
The Authority meets five times a year but additional meetings can be held if necessary. An urgency committee has also been established to meet and consider appropriate business where necessary.
Members of the public and press can attend part one of all Authority meetings. Part two agenda items are confidential for a number of reasons, including commercial confidentiality. You can download copies of meeting reports from this section of the website.
NLWA's standing orders are another key component of how the NLWA conducts its business at political and officer level. Standing orders regulate how business is carried out at committee meetings. You can see details of the Authority's standing orders in this section.
In this section you will also find information on monitoring, financial transparency - detailing how the Authority manages its finances to get best value for the north London taxpayer - and information about the Freedom of Information Act.
