Municipal Waste Management, April-June 2010
This release covers provisional quarterly results from the WasteDataFlow system for April-June 2010 (Quarter 1, 2010-11).
The key points from the latest release are:
- There has been an upward trend in the percentage of municipal waste recycled, reused and composted in Wales, rising from 41 per cent in April to June 2009 to 44 per cent in April to June 2010.
- The total amount of municipal waste produced in Wales has decreased overall, falling from 427 thousand tonnes in April to June 2009 to 413 thousand tonnes in April to June 2010.
- The residual household waste produced per person in Wales has continued to decrease, falling from 78 kilograms per person in April to June 2009 to 71 kilograms per person in April to June 2010.
- The annual municipal waste dry recycling and composting rate for Wales has continued to increase, from 28 per cent in 2006-07 to 39 per cent in 2009-10. This rate, based on final figures, is slightly below the target of 40 per cent municipal reuse/recycling/composting for 2009-10.
Figures in tables 5 and 6 were revised on 10 November 2010 following the identification of discrepancies in the data from WasteDataFlow. Data were revised on 10 November 2010.
Figures in tables 5 and 6 have been revised due to an error in the calculation of the percentage point change column in each case. Data were revised on 11 Mai 2011.
Review of content
The content of this release is currently under review and we would welcome any feedback from users. In particular we are considering whether remove tables 5 and 6 from future releases which provide information on residual household waste produced per person and per dwelling.
