League Tables

On 28 November 2019, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs published the recycling data for local authorities in England covering the financial year 2018/19. Traditionally the Department has published data on a financial basis although it is also now starting also to promote annual figures because the European Union recycling target of 50% for municipal waste had to be met by December 2020. Data published here in December 2019; source Defra statistics. Across the board, in 2018/19 England saw a 0.3% rise in the overall recycling rate to 45.1% reversing a similar fall in the previous period (see letsrecycle.com news report). East Riding of Yorkshire unitary authority again topped the table, achieving a 64.8% recycling, composting and reuse rate according to the figures. However, the authority has a relatively high waste per person rate of just over 495kg per person.
