Your 2011 Municipal Waste Management Strategy specified that the typical total costs of a tonne of household waste landfilled cost £142; incineration £138; recycled waste from co-mingled collection £109 and; recycled waste from segregated collection £68. Will you update the typical costs, given changes in waste facilities in London since 2011?

My Waste Officers review waste management costs on an annual basis using the best available information including WRAP's annual Gate Fee reports and information collated by London Councils. Whilst this will continue, a full review of London's local authority waste and recycling costs will be undertaken in updating my municipal waste management strategy, expected to commence in 2016.
