One of the largest MBT waste processing sites in Europe is being proposed to be built on land that is very close to houses and schools, and is currently a mature wildlife habitat that acts as a green buffer from the North Circular. It will also increase traffic congestion in an already congested area and further pollute the already poor air quality which will affect the health of nearby residents.

Come along and have your say – and hear about the alternatives!

Wanted urgently - your recycling ideas

The North London Waste Authority's own figures show that their proposed £100 million Pinkham Way waste treatment plant is not needed.

But recycling figures in North London are still way below the national average, and Barnet Green Party is rounding up ideas for extra ways the seven councils in the NLWA area could promote the reduction, re-use and recycling of waste materials.

More plastics? More food waste?

Do you have an idea for how the councils could enhance their doorstep recycling services or encourage the reduction and reuse of waste materials? Send your suggestions to

Shop leftovers? Building rubble?

And what about waste from shops and businesses? Or surplus construction materials? Send your views too on how those problems should be dealt with.

We'll send the final list to the local boroughs and the NWLA.The list of the many ideas already received can be checked at
