HC Deb 15 December 1989 vol 163 c883W
Dr. Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has any plans to introduce initiatives to encourage waste minimisation and recycling schemes.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

We intend to bring forward measures to encourage waste minimisation and recycling by ensuring the proper costing of waste disposal and requiring waste collection and disposal authorities to pay particular attention to recycling as part of their waste management programmes. In addition, we will continue to support projects such as the recycling city in Sheffield which are developing innovative ways of collecting and processing household recyclables.

Forward to
