HC Deb 04 February 2004 vol 417 cc899-900W
Mrs. Spelman

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs which landfill sites have been chosen to continue receiving hazardous waste following the implementation of the Hazardous Waste Directive. [151194]

Mr. Morley

I have placed in the Library of the House the information requested, as at the end of 2003. The choice of whether any sites under the ownership or control are classified as hazardous is a matter for the landfill operator. From July 2004, the Landfill Directive permits stable non-reactive hazardous waste to be disposed of in a separate cell in non-hazardous landfills. This is expected to result in additional capacity being available for the disposal of hazardous waste.
