Thank you to everyone for helping us recycle even more. Our recycling service has helped us maintain a high recycling rate across the borough of Rochdale.
More recycling means we spend less on waste disposal, helping us to protect other essential services.
How is our recycling rate calculated?
The waste the council collects from households, including kerbside collections from wheeled bins and bulky waste, plus waste we're responsible for such as litter, street sweepings and fly-tipping, is used to calculate our recycling rate as shown below.
|April–June||50.6 per cent||51.6 per cent||52 per cent|
|July–September||||51.3 per cent||51.7 per cent|
|October–December||44.4 per cent||49.1 per cent|
|January–March|| ||43.6 per cent||46.4 per cent|
Data is provided quarterly in arrears and is subject to verification by the Environment Agency.
How can I compare data between local authorities?
Information on waste collection and processing is entered on WasteDataFlow. Once verified by the WasteDataFlow team and the Environment Agency, the data can be viewed by the public.
