Our climate is changing faster than we and nature can adapt to. The rising temperatures, caused by burning fossil fuels and releasing carbon pollution, are having an extreme effect on global temperature, biodiversity, ecosystems, and food/water production and have displaced communities worldwide. To tackle the climate emergency, we all need to make changes in our daily lives.
All six of our west London boroughs declared a climate emergency in 2019. In response to this, West London Waste is placing a greater focus on the fight against climate change, setting a target of net-zero emissions by 2030.
Did you know that around 70% of what you throw away can be recycled or composted? This includes items like packaging, cartons, glass, food and plastics. Most of us have recycling collections from our front gardens or from bin stores at the flats we live in but many people don’t recycle everything they probably could.
Do you have any electrical items that are broken? Or not working as well as it used to? Always wondered, if it can just be fixed? Check out London Repairs to find the nearest business to repair your broken electrical device.
West London Waste Authority (WLWA) is a statutory Waste Disposal Authority (WDA) responsible for disposing of waste produced by 1.7 million residents, collected across the London Boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow and Richmond upon Thames. This includes the waste collected from households and at household waste sites.
WLWA is governed by six councillors. One councillor is chosen by each of the boroughs (Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow and Richmond upon Thames). A Chair and Vice-Chair are elected by the six councillors at the General Meeting held in June each year.
