About NLWA

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.

Facts and figures...did you know?

  • 827,000 tonnes of waste was collected by north London councils in 2012/13 – that’s enough to fill 945 Olympic-sized swimming pools or more than 19,000 Routemaster buses.

  • Around 80% was from north London households.

  • The amount of waste is expected to rise to 1.07 million by 2050 – more than 25,000 Routemaster buses.
