How much household waste is reused, recycled and composted in South Staffordshire?

 

Between 1st April 2014 and 31st March 2015, we recycled and composted 54.13% of household waste. In total:

 

  • 13,272 tonnes of garden waste was collected from the green bins and converted into compost

 

  • 10,599 tonnes of recyclables were collected from the blue bins and recycled back into new products

Blue Bin

Although the amount of household waste collected for disposal has decreased since the introduction of the kerbside recycling services, almost half a tonne per household was sent to landfill or for energy recovery between 1st April 2014 and 31st March 2015.
