Northern Ireland Kerbside Waste Composition 2017 - Summary Report, volume 1

Date published: 28 November 2018

The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) commissioned a study of the composition of household waste collected at the kerbside in Northern Ireland. 



The aim was to determine overall waste composition, individual material capture rates and the extent to which recyclable or compostable materials are being disposed of in the residual waste stream.  In addition, this report examines what has changed since 2007 in what we throw away in the residual waste stream, and the biodegradability of each waste stream for Northern Ireland.

Volume 1: Provides a summary overview of the project details results for Northern Ireland as a single entity.
