Recycling Performance

Headline Figures

How much household waste is reused, recycled and composted in South Staffordshire?
Between 1st April 2018 and 31st March 2019, we recycled and composted 50.07% of household waste. In total:

  • 11,786 tonnes of garden waste was collected from the green bin and converted into compost
  • 9,485 tonnes of recyclables were collected from the blue bins and recycled back into new products
  • 21,801 tonnes was disposed of either by landfill or at an energy recovery facility. This includes waste collected in grey wheeled bins and also material collected from our street cleansing services

Although the amount of household waste collected for disposal has decreased since the introduction of the kerbside recycling services, almost half a tonne (464 kg) per household was sent for energy recovery between 1st April 2018 and 31st March 2019 (this has increased marginally from 463 kg in 2017/18).

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.
