This section of the website outlines the type of information that is available from North London Waste Authority under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations (Statutory Instrument 2004 No. 3391).

Given the nature of NLWA's activities and the fact that environmental information is interpreted quite broadly NLWA now generally answers information requests under the Environmental Information Regulations rather than the Freedom of Information Act.

However, you may submit a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or Environmental Information Regulations – NLWA will answer the request according to the appropriate legislation.

This section of the website contains details of both types of regulation, what information NLWA holds and how to request it.

Key facts

The Freedom of Information Act gives you the right to ask any public body for all the information they have on any subject you choose. You can also ask for all the personal information they hold on you.
