How North London Waste Authority provides waste disposal services

This consultation is open

Start date 09 October 2017
End date 25 November 2017

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

This consultation follows on from the granting of a Development Consent Order which allows us 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. 

First, read the background information paper which tells you:

  • how the Authority disposes of north London's waste at the moment
  • how this might change in the future
  • what choices the Authority has to make about the future delivery of waste disposal services

After reading the background information, please complete a short questionnaire about the choices the Authority has to make. Use the two links below to complete this consultation exercise:
