League Tables

Data for England from the government’s WasteDataFlow database shows that recycling rates reached 43.7% for 2014/15, which marked a 0.2 percentage point increase on the 43.5% rate achieved in 2013/14.

The links to past years are for local authorities in England. In 2006/07 we show a separate table for recycling and in later years we give a separate table for both recycling and composting.

Last year, South Oxfordshire district council claimed its place at the top of the recycling league table, with a combined rate of 67.3%. Below are the top 10 collection authorities for recycling in 2014/15.
