Household waste

The London Plan, Published by the Mayor of London in March 2016, defines household waste as: ‘All waste collected by Waste Collection Authorities under Section 45(1) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, plus all waste arising from Civic Amenity sites and waste collected by third parties for which collection or disposal credits are paid under Section 52 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. Household waste includes waste from collection rounds of domestic properties (including separate rounds for the collection of recyclables), street cleansing and litter collection, beach cleansing, bulky household waste collections, hazardous household waste collections, household clinical waste collections, garden waste collections, Civic Amenity/ Reuse and Recycling Centre wastes, drop-off /‘bring’ systems, clearance of flytipped wastes, weekend skip services and any other household waste collected by the waste authorities.’
