Local Authorities are responsible for the collection of household waste. They are also required to provide a recycling service for at least two types of recyclable material.
Some leading local authorities are recycling nearly 70% of their household waste collected and a wide range of initiatives are being used across the country.
Our latest analysis focuses on the following indicators:
• Percentage of household waste sent for reuse, recycling or composting • Change in Recycling Rate • Residual Household Waste per household (kg per household) • Change arising in residual waste per household

*NB. Please note that the Period on the analysis must be changed when moving from looking at the indicators (NI191 & NI192), and the changes in these indicators between years. (eg. indicators are given years '2012-13', changes are shown as '2012-13 to 2013-14'
We are currently carrying out a mapping exercise to determine which indicators are collected locally by local authorities and if there are any other areas where local authorities would benefit from benchmarking information.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about our analyses or to suggest further areas of work where you feel your authority would benefit from benchmarking information.
