To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon on 12 February 2015 (HL4187), whether the Weekly Collection Support Scheme is still in operation, what additional schemes have been supported since that answer was given, and what applications are awaiting a decision.

The Weekly Collection Support Scheme is in operation until November 2017. However, all funding has been allocated and there are no applications still awaiting a decision.

Since the answer given on 12 February 2015, the department allocated £11 million in March and April 2015 through its Recycling Reward Scheme to support 41 local authorities to deliver initiatives which reward residents for doing the right thing and reducing, reusing or recycling their household waste.
