North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is cracking down on trade waste abuse at its north London reuse and recycling centres (RRCS). The cost of illegal use of the sites by some professional builders and landscapers costs is passed on to council tax payers; dealing with soil and rubble costs taxpayers more than £100,000 a year.
On Saturday 14 November, interior designer Linda Barker and Councillor Clyde Loakes, chair of North London Waste Authority (NLWA), officially opened ‘Second Time Around’ – a reuse shop located within the Kings Road Reuse and Recycling Centre in Chingford.
North London Waste Authority (NLWA) has joined Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall in his ‘war on waste’ this Halloween. NLWA rescued 3,500 unwanted pumpkins, which otherwise would have been left to rot in fields, and made sure that this year, the eating and composting of pumpkins were as much a part of Halloween as carving them.
Residents are invited to attend the official opening of Second Time Around – a new reuse shop in Chingford. The event is taking place on Saturday 14 November, 11am – 2.30pm at the Kings Road Reuse and Recycling Centre, 48 Kings Road, Chingford, London E4 7HR.
Following the Government’s decision to implement a 5p plastic bag charge in large shops from today (5 October), North London Waste Authority is now running its ‘Bag It Up + Reuse’ project in small shops across North London.
