Sita UK has unveiled an interactive map collating data on waste collected by local authority across the UK.
The map was produced by economics and planning consultancy Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners, and uses colour codes to identify recycling rates across different councils.
Users can click on individual authorities to view information including recycling services, materials collected, waste arising per capita and collection frequency.
Data was pulled from a range of sources including WRAP, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Resource magazine and Defra.
The map shows that local authorities in England achieved an average recycling rate of 44%, with Wales scoring 52% and Scotland 42%.
Sita chief executive David Palmer-Jones, left, said: “There is a good deal of publically available data for recycling and waste services at a local authority level, but we wanted to collate this information and present it in an easy-to-understand graphical format that everyone could use - not just those with enough interest to trawl through spreadsheets.”
