Domestic Waste: Greater London

Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what the figures for each London local authority for (a) household waste per head, (b) percentage of all household waste recycled, (c) total non-household waste and (d) percentage of all non-household waste recycled were for (i) 2006-07, (ii) 2007-08 and (iii) 2008-09. (295797)

The following table shows the data requested for 2006-07 and 2007-08. Local authority level data for all of 2008-09 will be published on DEFRA’s website on 5 November 2009.

As requested, reuse is not included in any of the recycling data so will therefore not match some published data which include reuse.
