Kerbside Best Practice

15 February 2007Kerbside Report 05/06

Report Summary

In Autumn 2006 Remade Scotland surveyed all 32 Scottish local authorities to gather data on kerbside recycling, with 29 full sets of data being gathered, the information covering the financial years 2004/5 and 2005/6.

The survey found that a total of 336,488 tonnes of recyclate was collected at the kerbside in 2005/6 from a combination of dry recyclate and garden waste collection schemes.

The four main factors influencing high recovery rates for dry recyclate collections were found to be collection frequency, collection capacity, number of materials collected, and collection frequency of residual waste.
