The annual report of ACR+ member North London Waste Authority (NLWA) shows that 33 123 tonnes of material were collected across the seven sites it manages in 2022-23 (between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023), the highest rate ever recorded. Of this, 76.1% was reused, recycled, or composted, a 2.3% increase on last year’s figure. The member continues to expand the range of materials collected at its reuse and recycling centres, with 84 589 mattresses recycled in 2022-23. NWLA processed 108 909 tonnes of mixed dry recycling tonnages from households. This is slightly lower than the 113 685 tonnes processed in 2021/22. The provisional household recycling rate is 30.7%, which is an increase on the previous year’s 28.4%. This is believed to be due to residents returning to workplaces in greater numbers and changes to shopping habits impacted by the cost-of-living crisis.
