Domestic Waste: Waste Disposal

Volume 488: debated on Friday 6 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in what circumstances waste collection authorities may refuse to collect domestic waste from households. (252732)

Section 46 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (EPA) empowers waste collection authorities to specify the conditions of their waste collection service.

Section 46 of the EPA also requires the authority to inform the recipients of their service of those conditions by way of a Section 46 notice.

The precise circumstances would therefore depend upon the locally determined conditions as specified.
