Whilst this is a commendable achievement we can see that there is still much to do if we are to continue these trends and meet the targets of 2019/20 and beyond.

If we continue to recycle the same percentage in 2019/20 as we did in 2013/14 we would fail the statutory target of 64% by 3.7% equating to approximately 2,500 tonnes.

The financial penalty incurred could be:

2,500 tonnes x £200/tonne = £500,000
