LANDFILL

30th November 2017

Sir Nicholas Soames: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what proportion of waste collections goes to landfill in (a) Mid Sussex constituency, (b) West Sussex and (c) England.

Dr Thérèse Coffey, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Environment: Information on the collection and management of all local authority waste for England, including figures for individual local authorities is published on an annual basis. Latest published figures are for 2015/16. For England 19.6 per cent of all local authority waste was disposed to landfill and West Sussex County Council sent 36.6 per cent of all its waste to landfill in 2015/16.

Data are reported at a local authority level rather than on the basis of parliamentary constituencies, so it is not possible to provide information for the mid Sussex constituency.
