North London Waste Authority (NLWA) Consultation

Closed 24 Nov 2017

Opened 9 Oct 2017



A consultation on how North London Waste Authority provides waste disposal services North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is the statutory waste disposal authority for the north London area.

The Authority arranges the disposal, recycling and composting of waste collected by the seven London boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest. The Authority's core statutory duties are to dispose of the waste collected by these boroughs and to arrange for reuse and recycling centres for the area's residents.


Why We Are Consulting

This consultation follows on from the granting of a Development Consent Order which allows NLWA to build new facilities for the treatment of  residual waste that is collected from residents across north London that needs to be disposed of, in other words, the waste that is not recycled or composted.  This consultation is about how we implement that permission, and in particular asks questions about the choices we need to make when we decide on how we take the permission forward.
