Household waste in Somerset falls to less than a tonne
Household waste in Somerset has fallen to its lowest level since the 1980s, Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) has said.
The average home produced less than a tonne of rubbish and recycling a year and, although recycling is still steady, in the last decade, the amount of waste has been falling steadily.
According to SWP’s report for 2011-12, “household waste arisings” – the total of domestic rubbish and recycling – fell by four per cent to 990kg.
The report added that recycling levels have remained at almost 51 per cent.
