It should be noted that local authorities have experienced considerable difficulty obtaining accurate and timely data from private sector operators. This can affect the quality of the data that is presented.

Date data covers:
01/01/2013 to 31/12/2013

Indicator numerator:
Weight (Kg) of household waste collected at kerbside or at recycling facilities which is sent for recycling

Indicator denominator:

Cautionary notes:
a) Galway City Council: The percentage and tonnage of household waste collected from kerbside and sent for recycling does not differentiate between recycling and recovery. These figure therefore include the percentage and tonnage of waste sent for thermal treatment, which is an energy recovery activity, not a recycling activity. The percentage and tonnage reported as recycled will not correspond with other regional/national reporting. This Service Indicator is not directly comparable with previous years data due to changes in calculation methodology and is currently under review b) Sligo County Council: No private Textile bank stats included in 2013 will be included from 2014 onwards
