The Association of London Cleansing Officers - ALCO

This forum meets regularly and maintains a reliable email based information sharing network.  The forum is set up as a means to update and inform London’s local authority senior officers on relevant waste management issues and topics.

ALCO's members include senior waste management officers and representatives from waste disposal authorities.  The forum also includes representation from London Councils, the Greater London Authority (GLA) and the London Waste & Recycling Board (LWARB).

London Recycling Officers Group - LROG

The group is well represented by recycling officers from each of London's local authorities. The officer group also meets regularly and uses email to disseminate relevant information and best practice sharing amongst its membership.

Meetings include presentations and discussion on policy and practical issues relating to recycling collection and treatment. Typically, each meeting is dedicated to a specific recycling theme.
