Environment Minister Baroness Denton today announced an increase from April 1994 in the payments made to recyclers under the recycling credits scheme.
Speaking at the Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee (LARAC) conference near Arundel, Lady Denton said: 'From next year, the amount payable by a waste disposal authority making savings because someone else is recycling household waste will be the full sum it saves for every tonne of recycled waste.
'We have decided that the method of calculating disposal credits from next April will be based on the most expensive disposal route for each individual collection authority's waste. Our intention is that authorities should pay credits which reflect the full costs of waste disposal.
'In a minority of cases, we accept that third parties may not be able to identify satisfactorily which of their collected waste comes from which collection authority. In those cases, we will provide that the credit should be equivalent to the highest level of credit which would be paid by the waste disposal authority in any of the collection authorities covered by the collection scheme.
