Northern Ireland local authority collected municipal waste management statistics released (via DAERA)

 
Recycling
 
Provisional Northern Ireland local authority collected municipal waste management statistics for July to September 2019 have been published today by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA).

This statistical report is updated quarterly and contains provisional information on key measurements of local authority collected (LAC) municipal waste for councils and waste management groups in Northern Ireland. 

The key points are:

  • Northern Ireland’s councils collected 274,032 tonnes of LAC municipal waste during July to September 2019. Household waste accounted for 87.3% of all LAC municipal waste collected during this period.
  • In July to September 2019, 56.1% of household waste was sent for preparing for reuse, dry recycling and composting. This is the highest rate ever recorded for Northern Ireland during July to September.
  • The landfill rate for household waste recorded a new low of 22.4% in July to September 2019, a fall from 70.3% in July to September 2006.
  • A fifth of LAC municipal waste arisings were sent for energy recovery in July to September 2019 compared to 0.1% during the same quarter 10 years ago.
