  • 11,571 tonnes of garden waste was collected from the green bin and converted into compost
  • 11,431 tonnes of recyclable material was collected from the blue bins and recycled back into new products
  • 23,310 tonnes of non-recyclable waste was collected from grey bins and treated at an energy recovery facility, equivalent to more than half a tonne per household per year.

How much waste do we currently send to landfill?
As of October 2013, no household waste collected from grey wheeled bins in South Staffordshire is sent directly to landfill. All such waste is now delivered to the energy recovery facility (ERF) at Four Ashes which is operated by Veolia Environment on behalf of Staffordshire County Council.
