Waste sent to Landfill

Martin Sawyer made this Freedom of Information request to Northamptonshire County Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Northamptonshire County Council.

Dear Northamptonshire County Council,

I understand that recycling is collected by Northampton Borough Council (NBC) and that as a result recycling rates are improving. Nevertheless some of this collected material will not be suitable for recycling and will find its way back into the main waste disposal system for which Northamptonshire County Council have responsibility.

I would like the annual figures for material sent to landfill and a break down of where this material came from. I would like figures from 2010 to 2019 :
Total Landfill tonnage
Total general waste from kerbside collections of black bins sent to landfill
Total recycling materials from kerbside recycling boxes/bins not recycled by NBC and sent to landfill.
Total waste/recycling which is sent for incineration.
Any further breakdown of the data that you see fit.

In summary, I am trying to determine if the stated recycling rates at collection are reflected in the amount of non-recyclable waste that finds its way to landfill.

Yours faithfully,

Martin Sawyer
