FOI 11335

Waste

Request


I am currently undertaking some research to establish how each Local Authority currently manages their waste including collections and disposal. I therefore wanted to request the following information under FOI to assist with this:



Collections:

Number of Properties in the Local Authority

Is your collection service delivered in-house or by an external provider?

If the collection is delivered by an external provider, which company delivers this service?

What is your total tonnage of waste arisings?



Recycling:

What is your current recycling %?

What is your total recycling tonnage?

Is your recyclates managed in-house or by an external provider?

If your recyclate disposal is managed by an external provider, is this under a contract?

If it is under a contract, who is this with?

When does the contract end?



Waste not recycled:

What do you do with the waste that is not recycled? E.g., landfill, waste to energy, incineration?

What is the total tonnage which is not recycled?

Is your waste disposal delivered in-house or by an external provider?

If your disposal is managed by an external provider, is this under a contract?

When does this contract end?



I would be really grateful if you could complete the attached questions and send the responses to ssloan@publicpowersolutions.co.uk . If you have any queries, I can be contacted on 01793 953200.



I look forward to hearing from you.



Kind regards
