Who we are

ReLondon is a partnership of the Mayor of London and the London boroughs to improve waste and resource management and transform the city into a leading low carbon circular economy.

What we believe

We are living through a climate emergency. We believe we can catalyse transformational change in London by inspiring and empowering the action of others. We can mobilise our boroughs, businesses and citizens to change their policies, practices and behaviours, to revolutionise the way we use stuff.

Together we can change the world.

Who we work with

Our priority audience is London – more specifically, London’s government (the Mayor and London’s boroughs), businesses and citizens.

Supporting boroughs to help London live sustainably

With the Mayor and London’s boroughs, we run initiatives designed to reduce volumes of domestic and commercial waste in London. We encourage council teams to shift to more circular systems in their working practices. And we improve recycling amongst residents and local businesses, helping to achieve the Mayor of London’s recycling targets.

Making the circular economy everyone’s business

With London’s businesses, we encourage businesses to explore, test and shift to more circular systems. We help early stage entrepreneurs design, test and shout about their new circular economy business propositions. And we influence the entrepreneurs of tomorrow to follow in their footsteps.

Inspiring Londoners to save the world, one behaviour at a time

With London’s citizens, we motivate hearts and minds to waste less and reuse, repair, share and recycle more. We change deep-seated habits and behaviours with regard to their relationship with stuff. And we encourage them to use London’s boroughs’ recycling and waste services, as well as circular products and services.

Governance and administration

ReLondon is the operating name of the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB) which was established under the Greater London Authority Act 2007.

Board and Audit Committee

ReLondon’s board meets quarterly.

The Audit Committee is made up of five members of the Board, also meeting quarterly and reporting into the Board on matters relating to the annual Report and Accounts, investments, staffing and policy changes.
