% 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 Q1 figures show 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.  However, the composting tonnage has a major impact on the overall rate and the dry June will have reduced the amount of garden waste generated. 

The latest national data for England ( for 2015/16)  shows the average rate to be 43%
