Waste Data in the UK

An assessment of the current system of data provision in the UK, its strengths, weaknesses and recommendations for improvement

The availability, accuracy and timeliness of waste data has long been questioned and the lack of reliable data has, in part, contributed to a great deal of debate about key areas of decision making and policy such as the potential treatment capacity gap in the UK and waste infrastructure planning applications.


The RWM Ambassadors commissioned this report to stimulate the debate around waste data and answer the following questions:



  • What do we need waste and resource management data for?

  • What specific information is required for each application?

  • What data is currently available, who collects it and how accurate and timely is it?

  • What data gaps exist and what might a proportionate and a robust system of collecting and reporting UK data look like?

  • Who should be responsible for collecting and reporting different data sets and how much might it cost?

  • What would be the benefits to the Government, the waste management
