Powers provided in the Climate Change Bill allow five local authorities to pilot incentives to encourage household waste minimisation and recycling.

Procedural details relating to the evaluation of these pilots are not a matter for legislation and will be considered separately in due course. In general, however, we welcome the public's views on the operation of the pilots.
