The publication schedule for the household waste data is set out on our Waste data reporting page.

The above table shows calendar year summaries of household waste data generated and managed by or on behalf of local authorities in Scotland. Each report shows the tonnage of household waste generated and the tonnages and percentages of household waste recycled and composted, diverted from landfill, and landfilled.

These data are published as Official Statistics. You can find out more about this from the Official Statistics webpage.

Household waste data is also published in the interactive Household waste discover data tool.

Household waste is waste generated by households (and not as defined by the Controlled Waste Regulations 1992 which are concerned with charging for collection). More information about the definition of household waste and recycling/composting targets is available. There are also some FAQ .
