Waste strategy and performance
Recycling and waste performance statistics
We have been in the top 10 nationally for 8 years in a row. Recycling rates at our household waste recycling centres for 2016/17 are at 76% and our recycling rate is 55.20%.
Municipal waste management strategy
Our municipal waste management strategy sets out how we intend to reduce, reuse, recycle, recover and dispose of municipal waste between 2014 and 2030. Our strategy sets out key aims and objectives for the management of waste. We will review our strategy every 5 years.
Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) review
Part of our municipal waste management strategy was to review the HWRC network. We undertook an independent review and consulted on our preferred choice.
