HC Deb 29 March 1999 vol 328 c462W
Mr. Nigel Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will list those local authorities which provide waste disposal facilities for use by individual council tax payers, without having a statutory responsibility to do so. [78584]

Mr. Meale

All waste disposal authorities are under a statutory duty under Section 51 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to arrange for places (commonly referred to as 'civic amenity sites') to be provided at which persons resident in their area may deposit their household waste free of charge.
