About us

The North London Waste Authority (NLWA) serves nearly 1.9 million people. We help your councils dispose of the 850,000 tonnes of waste that they collect every year.

Wise Up To Waste is about working with you to reduce waste and increase recycling. In north London, we recycle 33% of our waste. We are working towards increasing that to 50% by 2020.
