Domestic Wastes: Waste Management

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 14 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what guidance her Department has issued to local authorities on their duties in respect of regular rubbish collection. (141777)

I have been asked to reply.

My Department has funded research and guidance through the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) to assist local authorities in carrying out their waste collection operations in their chosen manner efficiently and effectively. However, decisions on the best way to collect waste are rightly a matter for local authorities, not central government.
