This is the fourth edition of the Digest of waste and resource statistics. The format and many of the subjects covered are the same as for previous editions, but there is also some new content.
Waste and resource are subjects for which there is a wealth of published data and it can be challenging to readily find the data you want and of interest. The aim of this Digest is to help by bringing together a wide range of key statistics on waste and resource into one publication.
The Digest is aimed at a wide audience, including policymakers, analysts and specialists in the Defra Network, Environment Agency, WRAP, other organisations, the waste sector, academia, other researchers and consultancies.
It includes data on:
- waste airisings
- waste composition
- food waste and local authorities collecting food waste
- waste treatment infrastructure
- gate fees
- environmental issues relating to waste.
