Local Authority Municipal Waste Management Report, 2010-11
The bulletin includes information about the amount of local authority municipal waste collected from household and non-household sources and the levels of recycling in Wales. The information presented relates to 2010-11, together with figures for previous years.
The key points from the latest bulletin are:
- The total amount of local authority municipal waste, excluding abandoned vehicles, generated in Wales has continued to fall since its peak in 2004-05, with 1.62 million tonnes produced in 2010-11.
- Even though the amount of waste disposed of in landfill continued to fall, it remained the main method for managing local authority municipal waste with 0.8 million tonnes sent to landfill in 2010-11, which accounted for 51 per cent of all waste.
- The percentage of local authority municipal waste (excluding abandoned vehicles) that was reused, recycled or composted in Wales has seen a continued increase since 2000-01 to over 45 per cent in 2010-11. In comparison the National Strategic Indicator rate (which uses a slightly different definition) is slightly lower at 44 per cent.
- Previously reuse/recycling/composting rates for household waste were at a lower level than for all local authority municipal waste, however more recently they have converged with 45 per cent of household waste reused/recycled/composted in 2010-11.
- In 2010-11, the local authority with the highest reuse/recycling/composting rate was Denbighshire (56.8 per cent), whilst Blaenau Gwent had the lowest rate (35.5 per cent).
