The London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB) brings together London’s waste stakeholders and a range of partners to transform the management of waste in the capital. LWARB is a statutory body, chaired by the Mayor of London or his representative (currently Dr Liz Goodwin OBE).
London Waste and Recycling Board
LWARB’s objectives are:
- the production of less waste
- an increase in the proportion of waste that is re-used or recycled
- the use of methods of collection, treatment and disposal of waste that are more beneficial to the environment in London
This is achieved through the delivery of three main programme areas:
- Resource London: a programme of support for London waste authorities jointly funded by LWARB and WRAP
- an infrastructure investment programme: with an aim to help deliver the infrastructure that is needed to treat London’s waste by providing funding in conjunction with the private sector. Funds are partly allocated to the London Green Fund (LGF) and
- circular economy programme: a three year programme aimed at accelerating London’s transition to a more circular economy through collaboration with the public and private sector and national and international partners
The returns on the infrastructure investment fund enable LWARB to continue to invest in London in the long term, in infrastructure, local authority support and other programmes.
