To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what assessment his Department has made of the effectiveness of the Real Nappies for London scheme; which London boroughs are participating in that scheme; what assessment his Department has made of the effect of that scheme on the reduction in tonnage of landfill waste and savings to local waste authorities; and if he will make a statement.
The Government is aware of the Real Nappies for London scheme. We welcome initiatives which keep waste out of landfill but we have not carried out a specific assessment on the impact of Real Nappies for London on tonnages to landfill, or savings to local authorities. There is information about Real Nappies on the Waste and Resources Action Programme’s website and many local authorities choose to promote reusable nappies as part of their waste prevention activities.
