Domestic Wastes: Waste Disposal

Volume 478: debated on Thursday 26 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs which London boroughs use wheelie bins as the main form of household waste collection. (210346)

DEFRA does not keep records on the types of waste collection system operated by local authorities. Decisions on local waste collection and recycling services are rightly for individual local authorities to make in close consultation with their residents. The Government strongly encourage local authorities to use good practice and to consider the overall carbon impact of their collection services. The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) provides local authorities with advice on this.
