To ask the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington, representing the House of Commons Commission, pursuant to the Answer of 30 January 2018 to Question 124972, on Incinerators, whether all the contents of the general waste bins in offices are put into the general waste stream and then sent for incineration.

That is the practice. As the House does not separate the contents of the general waste stream onsite, the entire content of the general waste bins is sent for incineration at an ‘energy from waste’ facility.
