Abstract

This report presents a review of international research into waste collections commissioned by WRAP and the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM). The report’s findings have confirmed existing advice for councils and householders on avoiding risks to public health. No evidence was found that changing to a fortnightly collection creates risks that cannot be dealt with by following the good practice guidance already available.
