The Strategy Unit has not published a specific report on variable charging for domestic rubbish collection. Its report “Waste Not, Want Not”, published in November 2002, looked at how we manage waste overall in England and considered a range of financial incentives to encourage householders to reduce and recycle more waste, including variable charging. The Government are currently consulting on proposals to allow authorities to introduce local variable waste charging following publication of the Waste Strategy 2007.
