NB:  Waste Enforcement during 2018 – Jan 2019 was a pilot contract with NSL. 
From 1/2/19 a new waste enforcement contractor commenced with Kingdom 
Services Group (now Local Authority Support). We have therefore broken down the

Further information

Barnet, the council’s data portal. This brings together all our published datasets and 
other information of interest on one searchable database for anyone, anywhere to

Advice and Assistance : Direct Marketing 
If you are a company that intends to use the names and contact details of council 
officers (or other officers) provided in this response for direct marketing, you need to 
be registered with the Information Commissioner to process personal data for this 
purpose.  You must also check that the individual (whom you wish to contact for 
direct marketing purposes) is not registered with one of the Preference Services to 
prevent Direct Marketing. If they are you must adhere to this preference. 
You must also ensure you comply with the Privacy Electronic and Communications 
Regulations (PECR). For more information follow this Link   www.ico.org.uk
For the avoidance of doubt the provision of council (and other) officer names 
and contact details under FOI does not give consent to receive direct 
marketing via any media and expressly does not constitute a ‘soft opt-in’ 
under PECR.
