Home Composting

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 1 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what steps the Government are taking to provide incentives for local authorities to promote home composting. (94771)

I refer the hon. Member to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Stroud (Mr. Drew) on 2 October 2006, Official Report, column 2553W.

Increasing the rate of home composting is an important way to reduce the amount of biodegradable waste being sent to landfill and therefore should help cut greenhouse gas emissions.
