Working in partnership
The six London Boroughs and West London Waste Authority work together in partnership to achieve higher recycling rates, diversion from landfill and the overall reduction of waste. We have regular contact and meetings at all levels, from senior managers to operational staff, as well as elected councillors.
There have been away-days organised for councillors and senior managers from the seven organisations, where we have developed a strategic approach and a shared vision for the future.
There is regular sharing of key management information, best practice and changes in legislation that could impact on waste management operations and policy. Each Borough has contributed to the development of a waste model that will inform and predict future waste tonnages. We also develop common responses to consultations from Government departments and other organisations.
