asked Her Majesty's Government:
With which refuse collection authorities in England they have had discussions with a view to running pilot waste reduction schemes.
My department is currently considering the appropriate process for waste collection authorities to express an interest in running a pilot waste incentive scheme to enable discussions to begin. Timings for this process will be subject to parliamentary progress on the Climate Change Bill. In the mean time, we continue to encourage and welcome authorities making enquiries on the implications of the legislation.
