New NLWA facilities will boost north London firms’ recycling

Waste recycled by north London businesses will benefit from a new strategy set to be put into affect by the North London Waste Authority (NLWA).

The organisation’s recent acquisition of LondonWaste Ltd from SITA UK will boost the delivery of the scheme, which has been agreed between the NLWA and seven borough councils.

Business located in Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest all stand to benefit, which is expected to save £200 million in waste disposal costs over 25 years compared to landfilling alternatives.

Commenting on the acquisition, chair of the NLWA Clyde Loakes said: “The NLWA is seeking a 21st century solution to managing waste in the area and this development is a significant step forward.

“In the longer term with the right facilities and services in place we will significantly reduce north London’s carbon footprint – in an affordable way.”

In October 2009, the NLWA announced that north London had started accepting more materials than in the past for recycling, including plastic bags, shredded paper and waxed cartons.ADNFCR-2805-ID-19540197-ADNFCR
