*Mainly garden waste but includes an unknown percentage of food waste from the districts that were still collecting mixed food and garden waste in those years.
Mixed recycling – we do not hold information regarding mixed recycling.
Aluminium – some is mixed with steel so we have offered metal (tins/cans/foil/scrap) in this category
Percentage recyclable waste has been calculated as follows – e.g. glass 15/16: 21510 / 202266 = 10.6%
3. Please provide where and how all non-recyclable waste is disposed.”
