% of household waste sent for reuse, recycling and composting


Projected % of of household waste collected which will be sent for reuse, recycling, composting or anaerobic digestion - based on current year-to-date information

The projected Recycling and Composting rate for 2017/18 is 53.9%. This will not be formalised until the autumn when the information that we provide to WasteDataFlow (WDF) is fully analysed and approved. 

This shows a projected increase compared to the 53.1% of 2016/17 largely due to the full year impact of the new recycling service and the food waste rollout in Shrewsbury which occurred during the last financial year. 

The latest national data for England ( for 2016/17)  shows the average rate to be 43% - performance in Shropshire is within the top quartile of all local authorities in England.
