Under the Freedom of Information act, please provide me with the following details:
The amount of waste local authorities collected in tonnes, broken down by recycling and non-recycling.
2014/15 (2015) – Devon Authorities Waste Reduction and Recycling Committee minutes
2015/16 (2016) – Devon Authorities Strategic Waste Committee minutes
2016/17 (2017) – Devon Authorities Strategic Waste Committee minutes
2017/18 – Not available
If the local authority exported waste to China during the years listed, how many tonnes of waste was exported to China and how much of the waste in tonnes was recycling and non-recycling?
The Council does not hold this information; however we confirm that no non-recycled waste was exported to China.
The distance in miles collected waste is transported to recycling centre, landfill, incinerators etc. and what proportion of waste is transported to those different places.
The Council does not hold this information. Waste: import and export controls can be viewed via the link provided.
The time range I am interested in is for each of the three years 2015, 2016, 2017.
