Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
Section 52(1) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 requires waste disposal authorities to pay waste collection authorities amounts representing their net savings on the disposal of waste retained by collection authorities for recycling.
Section 52(3) of that Act confers a power on waste disposal authorities to pay persons other than waste collection authorities equivalent amounts of waste collected by them for recycling.
The Environmental Protection (Waste Recycling Payments) Regulations 1992 made provision for the determination of a waste disposal authority’s net saving of expenditure for the purposes of section 52(1) or (3) of that Act in relation to such waste. The Schedule to those Regulations provided figures for determining a waste authority’s net saving of expenditure where this could not otherwise be determined because sufficient accurate information was not available, or could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. These Regulations increase those figures to take account of rises in the retail price index.
