Have your say on the future of waste management in North London

The North London Waste Authority (NWLA) has opened a consultation to get your views on how it provides waste disposal services.

The NLWA is the statutory waste disposal authority for the North London area. It arranges the disposal, recycling and composting of waste collected from the London boroughs of  Camden, Barnet,,Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest.

The NLWA is responsible for disposing of the waste collected by these boroughs and arranging for reuse and recycling centres for residents.

The consultation follows on from the granting of a Development Consent Order which allows the build of new facilities for the treatment of residual waste collected from residents across North London. This kind of waste needs to be disposed of, in other words, the waste that is not recycled or composted.

The NLWA now wants your feedback on how it undertakes the next steps, and how to take the granting of the Development Consent Order forward. To complete the consultation, it would be helpful to read the background information paper which tells you:

  • How the NLWA disposes of North London's waste at the moment.

  • How this might change in the future.

  • What choices the NLWA has to make about the future delivery of waste disposal services.

After you’ve read this, please complete a short questionnaire. Your answers and opinions count; they will be used by the NLWA to help make decisions about the services it provides. This consultation will run from Monday 9 October 2017 to Friday 24 November 2017.
