Recycling and Waste Management

Local Authorities are responsible for the collection of household waste.  They are also required to provide a recycling service for at least two types of recyclable material.  

Some leading local authorities are recycling nearly 70% of their household waste collected and a wide range of initiatives are being used across the country.

Our latest analysis focuses on the following indicators:

•    Percentage of household waste sent for reuse, recycling or composting
•    Change in Recycling Rate
•    Residual Household Waste per household (kg per household)
•    Change arising in residual waste per household

Next Steps

We are currently carrying out a mapping exercise to determine which indicators are collected locally by local authorities and if there are any other areas where local authorities would benefit from benchmarking information.

Please contact dan.worth@sparse.gov.uk for more information about our analyses or to suggest further areas of work where you feel your authority would benefit from benchmarking information.
