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

At what point in the financial year charges and rebates are made is a matter for any local authority piloting waste incentive schemes. They will take that decision based on what is right for their area.
