Tracking our progress

The ultimate aim of the new kerbside waste service is to reduce waste to landfill. Our target was to compost 10,000 tonnes of food organic and garden organic waste in the first year of service to April 2019. See how we did below:

It is also important to correctly separate our waste across the three bin service. To ensure this, we track the contamination rate. Essentially this rate means what percentage of waste has been placed in to the wrong bin. We want the number to be as low as possible. See how we compare to our targets below.
