EA data highlights urgent need to reduce waste production

A Waste Data 2006 report has highlighted the urgent need to reduce waste production and further promote material recovery. The Environment Agency (EA) report found that while waste sent to landfill had reduced by nearly 20% since 2001 an uneven distribution of landfill capacity could squeeze disposal availability in some regions. This could result in a rise in waste disposal costs as it would have to travel further and raises the risk of localised flytipping.
