1 Household waste Summary data 2014 This release shows the 2014 calendar year summary of household waste data generated and managed by or on behalf of Local Authorities in Scotland. This is the first publication of these data in this format. Further information including definition of terms is included in the methodology and glossary. Key points Household waste 2014 calendar year The total quantity of household waste generated in Scotland was 2.5 million tonnes in 2014, an increase of 1.9% since In general, however, household waste generation has been decreasing over the last few years and has reduced by 5.6% since 2011, a reduction of 147,103 tonnes. For the 2014 calendar year, the household waste recycling rate using a new calculation methodology was 42.8%. From 2014, household waste composted and diverted from landfill that did not reach the quality standards set by PAS 100 or PAS 110 has not been included in the recycling figures. If such waste was included, as in the previous method, the overall recycling rate in 2014 would have been 43.6% compared with 42.2% achieved in 2013 and 40.1% achieved in For the 2014 calendar year, the total amount of household waste other diversion from landfill, using a new calculation methodology, was 193,190 tonnes. From 2014, household waste composted and diverted from landfill that did not reach the quality standards set by PAS 100/110 has been included in the diversion from landfill figures. If such waste was not included, as in the previous method, the total amount of household waste other diversion from landfill in 2014 would have been 173,477 tonnes, which is 66.2% greater than in 2013 (104,367 tonnes) and 60.9% greater than in 2011 (107,831 tonnes). The quantity of household waste landfilled has fallen by 16.6% since 2011 and was 1.2 million tonnes in The percentage of household waste that was landfilled decreased from 53.5% in 2013 to 49.3% in 2014, a reduction of 78,417 tonnes. Data for household waste generated and managed for each local authority by waste type for and the trends for household waste generated, recycled and managed since 2004 is available from The Scotland s Environment Household Waste Discover Data tool here.

For the 2014 calendar year, the total tonnage of household waste recycled using a new calculation methodology was 1.05 million tonnes. From 2014, household waste composted and diverted from landfill that did not reach the quality standards set by PAS 100/110 has not been included in the recycling figures. If such waste was included, as in the previous method, the total household waste recycled in 2014 would have been 1.07 million tonnes which is 5.4% greater than in 2013 and 2.7% greater than in The quantity of household waste landfilled has fallen by 16.6% since 2011 and was 1.2 million tonnes in The percentage of household waste that was landfilled decreased from 53.5% in 2013 to 49.3% in 2014, a reduction of 78,417 tonnes. This 5

6 decrease is due to more waste being recycled but it is also due in part to more waste being diverted from landfill to incineration, and to mechanical and biological treatments such as the production of Compost Like Outputs (CLO) and production of Refused Derived Fuel (RDF).

The tonnage of household waste recycled and reused in 2014 was up 2% compare with 2013 but down 2% compared with 2011 indicating that the amount of household waste recycled and reused has remained relatively stable during the last four years. For the 2014 calendar year, the total tonnage of household waste composted calculated using a new methodology was 369,040 tonnes. From 2014, household 6

If such waste was included, as in the previous method, the total vegetal waste composted in 2014 would have been 243,868 tonnes, which is 4.1% greater than in 2013 (234,332 tonnes) but is 13.8% lower than in 2011 (282,962 tonnes). For the 2014 calendar year, the total tonnage of animal and mixed food waste composted calculated using a new methodology was 132,020 tonnes. From 2014, animal and mixed food waste composted and diverted from landfill that did not reach the quality standards set by PAS 100/110 has not been included in the composting figures. If such waste was included, as in the previous method, the total vegetal waste composted in 2014 would have been 142,408 tonnes, which is 26.9% greater than in 2013 (112,245 tonnes) and is 123.6% greater than in 2011 (63,681 tonnes). 10

In 2014 calendar year, vegetal wastes made up about 63.6% of the proportion of total household waste composted, with animal and mixed food waste contributing 35.8% and wood wastes 0.7%, based on the tonnages calculated using the new method. 11

12 DATA USES, FEEDBACK, REVISIONS POLICY, METHODOLOGY, GLOSSARY OF TERMS AND MEASURES, AND REFERENCES User Statement Data on household waste generation and management are collected to monitor policy effectiveness, particularly the commitments in the Zero Waste Plan and to support policy development. The data are also used to meet legislative reporting targets on recycling targets set out in the Waste Framework Directive (2008/98/EC) and Commission Decision establishing rules and calculation methods for verifying compliance with the targets set in the Waste Framework Directive (2011/753/EU) and to supply data for the Waste Statistics Regulation (2002/2150/EC). The data are used extensively by local and central government, the waste industry, researchers and the public as well. Feedback We welcome feedback on the data from all users including how and why the data is used. This helps us to understand the value of the statistics to external users. Please see our contact details at the bottom of the first page of this notice or Revisions Policy SEPA will provide information about any revisions made to published information in this statistics release and the associated datasets. Revisions could occur for various reasons, including when data from third parties is unavailable or provisional at the time of publishing or if there are subsequent methodological improvements or refinements. The figures are accurate at the time of publication. However the data may be updated if further revisions are necessary. Normally these revisions will be published concurrent with the next official release. Methodology Data is submitted by all 32 Scottish local authorities using the web-based reporting tool WasteDataFlow. From 2014, composted wastes that do not reach the quality standards set by PAS 100/110 are accounted for as other wastes diverted from landfill and not as waste composted. Further details on the methodology used to produce the figures are provided in the Household waste section of the annual Waste Data Quality Reports here. Please note that household waste figures published by individual UK countries may be based on alternative calculation methodologies and as such the figures may not be directly comparable. Glossary of terms BSI PAS 100 / 110 a national compost benchmark that specifies the minimum requirements for the process of composting, the selection of material from which compost is made, and standards for the compost product quality. PAS 100 is applicable to composting facilities while PAS 110 is applicable to anaerobic digestion facilities. The use of this standard to improve the quality of compost in Scotland became part of Scottish Government policy in 2011, with 2014 being the first year it has been applied to the household official statistics. Organic waste recycled that do not meet this standard have not been including in recycling statistics for the 2014 dataset. 12

13 Household waste waste generated by households (see full definition in Paragraph 1.2 of the Zero Waste Plan - guidance for local authorities here). Other diversion from landfill describes the fate of waste material not recycled or landfilled. It includes: household waste treated by incineration, including any incinerator bottom ash and metals from bottom ash that are diverted from landfill, weight loss that occurs during the composting of waste to PAS 100/110 and non PAS 100/110 compost where the output is landfilled, household waste Compost Like Outputs (CLO) that is not landfilled, weight loss that occurs during mechanical and biological treatment processes (e.g. production of CLO and Refused Derived Fuel (RDF)), from 2014, any waste composted that has not reached the quality standards set by PAS 100/110 and is not landfilled. Recycling rate is defined as waste recycled as a percentage of all waste generated. Note that total waste generated does not equal waste managed due to stockpiled waste which is counted in the generation figures and will be included in waste managed figures for the year when they are managed. Waste generated - is waste collected by or on behalf of local authorities that is managed within the relevant reporting year. This might include treated waste stockpiled prior to final management. Waste landfilled includes all household waste that is disposed of at landfill sites instead of being recycled or diverted from landfill through other methods. It also includes incinerator ash that is landfilled, plus any recycling and composting rejects that occur during collection, sorting or further treatment that go to landfill. Waste managed - includes all wastes recycled, diverted from landfill and landfilled within the relevant reporting year. This includes stockpiled waste from a previous year sent to final management but excludes treated waste stockpiled prior to final management. Waste recycled - includes recyclable materials that have been recycled or reused and also biodegradable materials that have been composted or digested. The amount of waste recycled, reused and composted is that accepted by the reprocessor. As such it excludes any recycling rejects that occur during collection, sorting or further treatment. From 2014, the composting figures using the new calculation methodology do not include any waste composted that has not reached the quality standards set by PAS 100/
