WRAP study into the gate fees for waste management services

WRAP is now undertaking the thirteenth annual gate fees survey, which investigates gate fees paid at waste treatment facilities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Results will also be available for London.

The key aim of the study is to increase transparency in the waste treatment market by ensuring that local authorities are better informed on the market prices for different services. The gate fees report provides important information that helps to improve the efficiency of the procurement and provision of these waste management services. The results of the most recent studies can be found here.

As part of the study we are carrying out an online survey that addresses the key questions regarding gate fees at facilities used by local authorities. We realise that local authority waste officers and facility operators are subjected to a large number of requests for information, and we have endeavoured to minimise the length of the survey to make the process as efficient as possible.

Please note that all information received through the survey is aggregated, and no data presented in the report will be associated with any specific waste management company, customer or local authority. The confidentiality of all respondents is guaranteed, and has always been a top priority in all previous gate fee surveys.

The Local Authority survey can be found here.

Please respond by Friday 13th March.

The annual gate fees study is undertaken on behalf of WRAP UK, and has the support of the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs, The Welsh Government, The Welsh Local Government Association, the Department for the Environment (Northern Ireland), LARAC, Resource London and the Organics Recycling Group (ORG) of the REA.

Thank you in advance for your assistance in making this year’s survey a success.
