What is NLWA?

North London Waste 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.

Working with local councils, we encourage and promote the three messages of reduce, reuse and recycle through waste prevention work in the community.
