Consultation description

We want to know what you think about our updated guidance for householders on meeting the duty of care for household waste. We’re also seeking views on new guidance for local authorities on issuing fixed penalty notices for household waste duty of care offences.

We previously consulted on introducing a Fixed Penalty Notice for breaches of the household waste duty of care. If a final decision is taken to introduce the Fixed Penalty Notice, this updated guidance will be provided for households and local authorities.
