Defra Ministers and officials have held a number of meetings with stakeholders regarding the Government's Review of Waste Policy.

The review's call for evidence received over 300 detailed responses from a mixture of local authorities, businesses, private individuals and civil society organisations, emphasising the diversity of local circumstances. These are already publicly available in the Defra Information Resource Centre.

To support the review's call for evidence, Defra also hosted an interactive debate on its website, which received 374 published comments, and a short online survey which around 1,500 respondents completed.
