Waste Disposal: Fees and Charges

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 11 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what assessment his Department’s National Fly-tipping Prevention Group has made of the effects on the incidence of fly-tipping of charges for the collection of household waste. (252321)

Members of the National Fly-tipping Prevention Group attend meetings on a quarterly basis. Issues relating to charging for collection of household waste have not been formally raised as an agenda item and therefore have not been discussed.

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs which local authorities have expressed an interest in levying charges for the collection of household waste; and how many such expressions were made by (a) elected councillors and (b) council staff. (252641)

I refer the hon. Member to the written statement I made on Household Waste Incentives on 22 January 2009, Official Report, column 40WS.
