Learn more about Household Waste in England
England With a population of 56,000,000 England is one of the most populated countries in Europe. A lot of effort from all the cities, waste contractors and residents must be made to ensure England performs better sustainably it is 130,395 square kilometres, which contains cities and an amazing 1,639,560 hectares of greenbelt land.. The various councils within the England offer a range of waste management services to houses and other residential properties, most of them specialise in general waste collections and mixed recyclable waste collections. Some councils offer other waste collections, such as garden waste recycling, and most of them will also offer large or bulky waste item collections. In England there are 345 local authorities and over 5,000 waste operators that all come together to manage the role of waste management. However, there are only eight local authorities that achieve a recycling rate higher than 60%: East Riding of Yorkshire Council 64.8%, South Oxfordshire District Council 63.3%, Three Rivers District Council 63.0%, Vale of White Horse District Council 62.5%, St Albans City and District Council 62.1%, Surrey Heath Borough Council 61.9%, Rochford District Council 60.9% and Stroud District Council 60.2.
The main issue with the councils in England is that the regulations and services offered can be different per area. This lack of a uniformed approach can leave people confused, as an example some council’s do not offer a garden waste collection. One of the biggest issues facing the councils is their poor performance when it comes to recycling England managed a recycling rate of 44.70%, which is low for such a forward thinking and thriving country, when compared with others in Europe, for example Wales which managed to recycle 52.2%. Add to that the fact that England is running out of space sending 55% of waste to landfill is not sustainable
Another issue is England’s councils make it difficult to dispose of large or bulky waste items as they understandably have too many specific requirements for the collection, as an example they do not come into your property, so you need to do all the hard work by bringing all the waste items to the roadside for them to collect. They also do not give any specific collection time on a specific day, leaving the street looking untidy. There are times when you will need to look for an alternative to the council purely for service levels and environmental reasons.
