Between 2010 and 2013 NLWA ran a procurement process for long term waste management services. The procurement was for two contracts: waste services and fuel use. The waste services contract was to develop a sustainable waste management solution for north London, including building and operating new waste and recycling facilities. For the element of the waste that cannot be recycled or composted it was proposed that it would be used to create a Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) which would then be used to create energy by the Fuel Use contractor.
On 27 September 2013 the Authority announced that it had decided to end its procurement for long term waste management services. This section of the Publication Scheme contains documents about the Authority's procurement project for Waste Services and Fuel Use contracts for north London which are publicly available.

Updated waste projections
During the procurement we updated the waste tonnage projections which were included in the North London Joint Waste Strategy (February 2009) and undertook extensive waste data work to ensure that the best information was used. This included borough-by-borough review of anticipated tonnages and waste composition surveys.
