Waste Disposal: Fees and Charges

Volume 483: debated on Tuesday 18 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs whether the proposed pilot waste incentive schemes for the collection of household waste will include houses in multiple occupation. (235148)

It will be for local authorities piloting waste incentive schemes to determine which households they wish a proposed waste reduction scheme to cover, within the legal framework set out in the Climate Change Bill. DEFRA published draft guidance for authorities in the summer, which considers this issue in more detail. We plan to publish the final version after Royal Assent to the Bill.
