Domestic Waste: Waste Disposal

Volume 490: debated on Friday 27 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Bromley and Chislehurst (Robert Neill) of 2 February 2009, Official Report, column 974W, on waste management: South East, what guidance the Waste Improvement Network has given to local authorities on the collection of household waste. (262694)

I have been asked to reply.

The Waste Improvement Network (WIN) has been developed by the Improvement and Efficiency South East (IESE) to bring together waste management information and to support local authorities in procurement and decision making. IESE is one of nine Regional Improvement and Efficiency Partnerships (RIEPs) which support local government efficiency and improvement.

WIN does not provide direct advice. It provides information, including case studies and reports on activity in and experiences of councils around the country. This helps to ensure councils are up to date on what other councils are doing and able to learn from one another's experiences.
