ENVIRONMENT REPORT 2018
As shown in Figure 20, approximately 12,800 fewer tonnes were sent to landfill in 2017 than 2016, when almost 88,500 tonnes of total waste were reused or recycled. Disposal routes categorised as 'other' include the treatment of aqueous wastes, composting and land spreading; these also saw a sharp decline.
Of the 4,300 tonnes of decommissioning waste generated in 2017, 94 per cent was either re-used, recycled or used for power generation.
