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). Some 1.7million residents live in the NLWA area.
NLWA is responsible for the disposal of almost 850,000 tonnes of waste 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
NLWA is working on one of the largest procurement projects in the UK today, which will deliver new waste infrastructure for north London.
