Waste sites and capacity information excel

The Scottish waste sites and capacity reports provide information about the numbers and types of waste management activities holding a Waste Management Licence (WML) or Pollution Prevention Control (PPC) permit issued by SEPA. It also provides the sites annual capacity, which is the tonnage of waste a regulated site is licensed or permitted to handle in a given year and the remaining capacity for landfills.

Data

The excel spreadsheets contain a list of all sites and information from the Scottish waste sites and capacity interactive tool

To continually improve the Scottish waste and capacity interactive tool we would ask you to provide feedback and suggestions by completing a short questionnaire.

The waste sites and capacity spreadsheet contain the following information, where available:

  • operational status of site;
  • licence/permit number;
  • site location (for example, local authority and National Grid Reference);
  • site activity (for example, landfill, incinerator, civic amenity site);
  • licensed waste types (household, commercial, industrial, special, inert);
  • annual capacity in tonnes (as stated in licence/permit) where know;
  • tonnage of waste handled per year (from statutory returns).  

The landfill sites and capacity spreadsheets contain the following information, where available:

  • operational status;
  • licence/permit number;
  • site location (for example, local authority and National Grid Reference);
  • type of landfill (hazardous, non-hazardous, inert);
  • total capacity in tonnes (from licence/permit); annual capacity in tonnes (from licence/permit);
  • tonnage of waste landfilled per year (from statutory returns remaining capacity in tonnes (from operator);
  • rate of infill (tonnes/year) and date of ceasing infill (from operator), where available.  

It is important to consider capacity information in conjunction with actual tonnages handled and the number of data quarters submitted in that year. The data is extracted from SEPA’s register of licensed/permitted sites and from the information supplied by operators of these sites on the quarterly licensed/permitted site return form.
