Waste arisings within England have been in decline since 2006/07.  This reduction is due to a combination of factors which include the reduction in packaging and reduction in raw materials in packaging type (thinner glass etc) together with successful waste minimisation campaigns.  This has been exacerbated in more recent years by the economic downturn, which has reduced spending.

These National trends have been echoed within Stoke-on-Trent and this has led to a reduction in waste disposal costs over the same period.  The success of the enhanced recycling scheme has seen a further reduction in waste inputs to the plant of 14,612 tonnes in 2010/11.

As a result of the reduction in waste sent to the Energy from Waste plant at Hanford it has been possible to assist Sandwell Council, Derby City Council and Leicestershire County Council to reduce disposal costs and exposure to landfill infraction penalties.

Very secretive about costs of

Very secretive about costs of waste collection and disposal, possible due to ongoing talks with waste to energy company.

wonder why amout sent to land fill went back up 2010-211 to nearly what it was before enhanced collection started
