How much do we Recycle?

How the Recycle Rate is calculated

Recycling from all our bring sites, kerbside recycling, green waste, other recycling sources is weighed. Everything that goes to landfill (including refuse collections, road sweeping, litter and dog bins contents, clinical waste and bulky waste collections) is also weighed. The recycle rate is calculated by dividing the recycle weight into the combined tonnages. The recent figures may fluctuate until all data is in.
